Wrong admin panel loads

  • Hi moffett8,

    It seems like a DNS issue. When you cloned the website, was the IP changed? Or the host headers of the web server need to be updated. This might shed some light: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    Hi,
    The ip was not changed, the site was copied from one subdomain to another subdomain of the same domain. The website actually works. The reason I need to update the setting by accessing files is because I need to change the header etc on the new site. When I login by wp-admin it takes me to the old website. I can’t find any file on the new website that lists any url for the old website or the new. If I knew the file name and location I could edit the file and i think that would fix my problem. Php config has everything but the site url.

    In that case the domain changed (even though it is a sub domain) and there are some steps you must follow to configure WordPress to run on the new sub domain. Here is the information you need:

    Hope this helps you solve your issue.
