  • Resolved TreeTrail


    I feel like this is an answer that I should be able to find by myself. But I’ve searched unsuccessfully for over an hour. When I do the below query, I found that my OLD database name is in the value for ‘ossdl_off_cdn_url’. Is that correct or should I update it to the name of my current database?

    SELECT * FROM wpdu_options WHERE option_value like ‘% my old db’s name is here %’

    Many thanks for any ideas.

    ‘ossdl_off_cdn_url’ is not a standard option. I’ve no idea what its purpose is. It’s hard to imagine why anything would want an old DB name for any reason. The cdn_url part gives me pause. It sounds like the value should be the URL for where you have CDN data stored and not a DB name. Are you maybe conflating the terms “CDN server” and “database”? They’re not really the same thing. In any case I think it should reflect the value for your current resources and not some old resource no longer used.

    If you decide to update the value, make note of the current value in case you need to revert.

    Thank you so much for your prompt reply! Knowing that this is not a standard WP Option is very helpful. I found that a plugin that I no longer use, “WP Super Cache” had integrated with something called “OSSDL CDN off-linker”. ( As reminded, I’ve made a copy of the the 4 records and am testing their deletion in a staging copy.

    Very Best Regards,
