I have this interesting problem:
I’m taking over another person’s computer (Mac)
and it has a blog (wordpress + php + mysql) set up (it’s
hosting the blog)
whenever you type in “localhost”, it should take you directly to the blog
(this blog is viewed within an office network)
After i took over this computer, i changed the computer name.
So in “Sharing” in “System Preferences”, I gave it a new name
and even changed “OldOwner.local” to “MyName.local”
however, the problem rises when:
– I typed in “localhost” in the browser, it takes me to “OldOwner.local/wordpress”
– I type in “127.0.0.1”, it still takes me to “OldOwner.local/wordpress”
– I type in “localhost/wordpress”, THEN it takes me to “MyName.local/wordpress”
The text of the blog is still there, but the images are all gone ( because the URL link to them are
It always goes back to the OldOwner, how do I fix this problem?
Thank you so much!
