  • Resolved ruchti


    I am trying to move a site from a test subdirectory to the root domain.

    I was having trouble getting the backup to automatically populate to the remote path on the new server, even though it said the transfer was successful, so I just manually moved the backups and sql file created by WP Move to the backups folder on the new server via FTP.

    I then went into the new installation and used the WP Move “Migration Assistant” to restore. Everything worked, but I cannot log in to WordPress at the new installation. When I go to domain/wp-admin it forwards me to the old sub-directory domain/subdirectory/wp-admin and I get stuck in a loop. The only way to log in is to manually go to domain/subdirectory/wp-admin in my browser.

    I’m guessing this happened since I used manual backups. Is there something more I need to edit or modify?

  • Hi, You need to go to database and to wp_options and to correct siteurl to your new url, and after it go to your site wp-admin -> option -> general and correct WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL).

    Sincerely sorry for the late reply.

    One can always add the following to the wp-config.php file if the URLs do not work as expected.

    define( 'WP_HOME', '' );
    define( 'WP_SITEURL', '' );
