View Full Version : Renaming a domain

11-12-2007, 07:09 PM

I tried to rename a domain and have been having some trouble getting everything working. The old domain was kirtburdick.com.whsites.net. The new domain is howtobebulletproof.com.whsites.net. When I go to the second domain, it seems to be redirecting to the old domain name. I can't figure out why. In my http.conf file, the virtual host is set up like so:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName howtobebulletproof.com.whsites.net
ServerAlias www.howtobebulletproof.com.whsites.net
DocumentRoot /var/www/howtobebulletproof

There's no mention of kurtburdick at all in the http.conf file. (PS: kirtburdick.com does exist on another server at the moment. We're transferring it over once we create the new site.) I installed wordpress at howtobebulletproof.com.whsites.net, and that's what should be appearing when I go to that address.

Any idea what is causing that redirection issue?

What is in the configuration for Wordpress? Did you perhaps install it using the old domain name?

Oh yeah! That probably has something to do with it. Thanks for the advice. I should be able to fix it now. :-)
