  • Usually takes a few hours or up to 24 hours for servers to propagate. Even though they may have propagated in your area, they may not have in her area.

    Also to speed things up make sure she clears her browsers recent history and cache to ensure she is getting the latest version.

    Thanks DesignLoud.

    I moved the domiain and installed the new site from a backup a couple of weeks ago. I’m pretty certain that everything is set.

    The same thing happens when I try to login to her old site. I use the same “old” login and login address and it redirects to the new site.

    These are different servers/hosts? You can’t use the same domain name in more than one place

    Ok, and you are sure both nameservers on the domain are pointing to the new location?

    Another thing that could be happening is there are url’s and strings embedded in database files so if you moved the database to there could be some old strings or tables pointing to the old url.

    A good resource I have used many times is the WP Migrate DB plugin that will do a search and replace on your database to change all old urls to new ones and give you a downloadable file that you can import into your new database using phpmyadmin.

    Here is a good link I use for moving WP websites: http://wp.smashingmagazine.com/2013/04/08/moving-wordpress-website/

    I am trying to use the same domain in two places. I guess I will have to try and figure out a work-around for the time being.

    Thank you both for your input.

    Oh, well in that case couldnt you just create a add on domain for example testing.yourwebsite.com and then use the WP-Migrate plugin to get the database file ready for import. Then in the add on domain directory move the copies all your WP files into the directory and setup your database (make sure wp-config.php matches this) and you should be good to go. You will have a testing environment for you and they still have access to their domain and website while you work.

    Dont forget to select the field for search engines not to index the testing site though in the reading settings.

    Good suggestion. I have done that before, but didn’t want to go through the trouble. I guess I will have to. Thanks again for all of your help.

    No problem, good luck 🙂
