Post-migration access and redirect problem (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I migrated my blog from http://www.lyhagen.com to http://www.reintegrate.net by backing up all wordpress files on lyhagen.com and uploading them to reintegrate.net, then export/import of db using cPanel.
    So I currently have two identical databases on the two sites.
    I am running Woothemes template Canvas.
    Hosting provider Doteasy.com

    Two problems (so far):
    1. I can't log-in on reintegrate.net wordpress dashboard.
    a, Logging in on http://www.reintegrate.net/wp-login.php logs me in to http://www.lyhagen.com/wp-admin/
    b, Going to http://www.reintegrate.net/wp-admin/ redirects me to http://www.lyhagen.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reintegrate.net%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1 and then logs me in to http://www.lyhagen.com/wp-admin/

    2. All links on http://www.reintegrate.net points to http://www.lyhagen.com so if I click on a post on http://www.reintegrate.net it opens the post on http://www.lyhagen.com. http://www.reintegrate.net should obviously be stand-alone.

    Please advise!!
    Thanks!!

    /Fredrik

    1. log in to your cpanel and go to phpmyadmin.
    2. go to the wp_options table of your wordpress database, look for option_name siteurl and change the option_value to your new site address.
    3. look for option_name home and change the option_value to your new address.

    if you are comfortable running sql commands on phpmyadmin, you can just call up all instances of your old site address and update it with the new one.

    hope this helps!
