[resolved] Migrated to diff domain on samer server/hosting...but (5 posts)

    Having trouble logging into wp-admin on new site after transffering from one domain to another on the same server. When I go to http://craig-erickson.com/wp-admin , it is redirecting or something to the old domain wp-admin login. Not sure why. But I can't log-in on new site if it keeps doing this. Any suggestions?

    The index.php page comes up and works, I just can't get correct wp-admin login screen to appear.

    Also, when I do type in http://craig-erickson.com/ , all my links are still pointing to old domain name. IF i manually type in the full path link, the pages work....

    What I've done is transfered and replaced all my files to the new domain and on m sql file, replaced all instances or old domain with the new domain, saved, and all of that....

    No clue where to go from here. It's my first migration.

    Did you update the site url. It sounds like that is your problem. Here's the codex on it:

    You can change the site url and wordpress url under General settings before you backup your site and move to the new domain


    You can change these in the database using PhpMyAdmin
