[Resolved] can't login after changing domain name
i originally built a wordpress site at http://www.lynnanneshapiro.com. then we purchased a new domain name, http://www.lynnshapiromedicalwriter.com, changed the DNS settings (i think) and had the site reside at http://www.lynnshapiromedicalwriter.com with http://www.lynnannshapiro.com be a redirect to the new site.
however, now that the swap has been made, i can no longer login to the site at http://www.lynnshapiromedicalwriter.com/wp-login.php. when i try to login there, i get a message at the bottom of the screen saying “Waiting for lynnanneshapiro.com”. And it never connects. it’s probably looking for http://www.lynnanneshapiro.com/wp-admin.php which no longer exists.
you’ll also notice that if you’re on the login page (http://www.lynnshapiromedicalwriter.com/wp-login.php) and hover over the “Back to Lynn Anne Shapiro” link at the top, it links to the old site and not the new one.
what do i need to do to get it working properly and be able to login? do i need to make a change to the database? databases aren’t my strong point so please be specific with any steps.
please advise. thanks in advance!
