Redirecting to old site? (4 posts)

    Hi.

    I have recently had to move my site due to a host issue. We were at less than 90% uptime (unfortunately) and I have chosen another host.

    All of our databases have been moved correctly and the config files have been edited so that we are able to reach the site.

    However, when any of my admins log into the administrative control panel, as soon as we select any links (other than the dashboard) we are taken back to the OLD site.

    Can somebody please help me to identify the config file I need to edit in order to NOT redirect to the previous site? We are actually on an entirely different domain now.

    Thank you for any help you can provide!

    Did you change the URL to your site? If so you will need to go into the database and in the options table change the values for 'siteurl' and 'home' to your new url.

    On a side note. I hope you weren't paying for that; you can easily get 97% on a free host.

    Into the database... Herm, okay. I'll have a look at it. I'm bad with databases for some reason. This was a fantastico install the first time around, but I had done Moveable Type (ARGH!) before on several occasions, so I'm good with the files. Got to be to get that one installed.

    And yeah... We were paying for it. We did make good on their money-back guarantee for the time that we were having so much difficulty. They guaranteed 99.99% uptime. Yeah... Right!

    We've got too much stuff on our site to go with the free packages that some hosts offer, but thanks for mentioning it :) We'd thought about it, but we're just too big. We're now with hostforweb and I couldn't be happier. They're great and helped us get everything moved, but that one problem is persistent. We're having one with our forum software too. Looks like we're going to have to redo all that. Reinstalling WP would be SO much easier than reinstalling and backing up everything in SMF.

    I don't understand: did you move your blog/site to a new domain or just moving the a better server/host?
