    Hello all, I am currently building my website and adding my products etc. When i first opened the SQL database i named it in the old name i wanted to call my site which is now longer valid. I went into the SQLadmin via MAMP (I am running a MAC) and renamed my SQL database to read the current name and i did change the "Domain" in WP-Config file.

    However when i load the page i get my home page but none of the other links loads??

    I am a bit of a noob at this as you can tell but if somebody could please point me in the right direction it would be greatful.

    Cheers James.

    Hi James,

    I'm not very familiar with running MAMP installations of WordPress, but I would recommend checking your wp-config.php file for:

    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'YourDatabaseName');

    You will want to make sure that the database name there matches what you changed it to in SQLadmin.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Christi N.
