Hello my fellow Magento users,
I really need some help because the alternative is starting over and I really donât want to do that.
Heres my problem:
I change the admin base url in the backend and after that I was not able to access my admin, however my home page and
all products worked fine. So I ended up having to reinstall magento and with the fresh install I loaded my backup
files; (media, skin, and app) via FTP. Well, everything loaded fine and I was able to access the admin, except all of
my work with home page, about page and all products were not showing up on the frontend.
Here is where it gets frustrating. If I replace the old (app\etc\local.xml), then my front end works fine with all of
my pages and products, but my admin (backend) login doesn’t work.
Now if I put back the new (app\etc\local.xml), then my admin (backend) login works fine, except my frontend pages and
products are not showing up.
I think I narrowed it down to:
and the other (app\etc\local.xml) will show:
Now I think what is happening here is that if products and pages are listed under (x xxx_01) and I’m using the other one
(xxxx_02), then system is being told to look for the wrong database?
Can anyone tell me where I can find the data files that I need to change in order to make the products and pages show
I guess what I need to know is what file or files need to be change from (xxxx_01) to (xxxx_02) so it will read under
the new (app\etc\local.xml).
