Support » Localhost Installs » Network Admin redirects to local server

  • Hi everyone!

    This is the first time I’m using a localhost (via MAMP) to develop a multisite. It’s 1 main site:, with 2 subdirectories:, and

    Hosting is provided through a company called Verve Hosting, and they use Cpanel to manage files and everything else.

    Here’s the problem I’m having, and forgive me if this is a dumb one because I’m new to all of this. When I first migrated my site live, my network admin panel wouldn’t load – I kept getting a redirect loop. I still could access the dashboard and all other pages for my main site and both subdirectories.

    I changed some settings in my wp-config file and when I reuploaded that to the site using Cpanel, the rest of the sites were working fine (as they did before) but my Network Admin was now linking to my localhost, not the network admin panel/page/section on the live site.

    How do I make the network admin page on the live site appear and not link to the network admin on my local host? I need to manage certain plugins at a network level on the live site (like BackupBuddy). Or am I missing the point of using localhost and this is supposed to happen?

    Thanks in advance for all of the help!
