[resolved] Changing multisite URL (4 posts)

    In order to migrate existing blog content, I first set up a multisite WordPress install at http://newblogs.centralpenn.edu, which is not publicly accessible. After moving over content, I followed the instructions here to change the URL of my site to http://blogs.centralpenn.edu. Only the URL is changing, the file location on the server has not changed.

    Everything seems to work fine, except I am unable to access any of the network administration features, as these are still pointing, for some reason, to http://newblogs.centralpenn.edu/wp-admin/network/.

    I am completely stumped. I have gone through the databases manually looking for any mention of newblogs.centralpenn.edu and found nothing. I used the search and replace script, which was also unable to find anything.

    What am I missing? Any ideas?

  2. Check your wp-config.php file.


    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'newblogs.centralpenn.edu');


    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'blogs.centralpenn.edu');

    Does that fix the issue? If it does, then I'm not sure why that's not in the codex.

    That did it!

    Thanks so much. I knew there was something that I was missing, and there is no mention of it in the codex.

    Thanks again - have a great weekend!

  4. Cool, I'll add to the codex tonight :)
