Just Renamed My SQL Database – Now Website Does not Work!!!!!

  • 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.
