Hello,

I have made a big mistake for helping a friend moving his website.
At first the website was on www.touchmods.fr/magento , i advice him to move his magento in the first website folder for being more “pro”

But it doesn’t work, now the website is broken, and i tried to fix it but i can’t, the php code and the database is so big.

Do you have a tutorial to do that?

Please i can’t sleep.

Cordialy,

kopax

EDIT : by the way, i’m on a linux host, but i only have a ftp and phpmyadmin access.
I can’t access the /etc/apache2/

Hi, i think there are 2 steps in doing that:
1) go to your phpmyadmin and edit the values in table core_config_data. browse the table and you should find two rows called web/unsecure/base_url and web/unsecure/base_url .you must modify the “values” column belonging to those two rows from http://www.touchmods.fr/magento to http://www.touchmods.fr
2) delete the contents of the var folder.
I’ve tried it on localhost and it worked perfectly, i’m waiting for your feedback, good luck!

Hello, thanks for your answer.

It work great, but now, when i try to edit something in admin panel, i have sometimes (random) error :

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error 
or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administratorpostmaster@www.touchmods.fr and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I don’t have access to the serveur log, i will try to find it but it’s not 100% sure.

The website is very slow since i move it up on the ftp.

Do you have an idea of what happen?

I guess it has something to do with the hosting, my localhost “moved” installation seems to work perfectly, no errors, so you should find a way to acces your server logs or talk to your hosting company.

try to access your admin using your server ip address instead of the website name.
