[resolved] New hosting, absolute links, etc. (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    I recently changed the hosting and I need to update the WP backend. As of now, the content is replicated on both hosts as I want to make sure the new one works before removing the old content. The new wp-config.php file has been updated accordingly, and I hope correctly.

    Now, the DNS propagation has gone through, but I see some weird behavior and cannot log in. The wp-admin page loads some upgrade widget that tells me that no upgrade is required, clicking on continue seems to log me out. Wp-login used to log me into the old site, and now that I've changed the URL in General Settings, it does the same as wp-admin. So basically, I cannot access my content 'from inside' and the questions are:

    (1) Does the above seem like I did something wrong and what might it be?

    (2) Is there a way to make changes by editing php files directly, via FTP or ssh? I will need to change all the old absolute links to the new ones, but even though I've installed the Velvet Blues plugin, I cannot use it because my access to Dashboard is blocked.

    Any ideas / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The problem was in the .htaccess file, which was messed up for some unknown reason. Replacing it with the usual file led to fixing of the problem.
