Hi I’m entirely new to magento, hoping I could find some help here.
The site I work with just recently changed its domain, therefore every time I access the old domain it redirects me to the new one. However, I’m now having problems doing updates in the admin panel, whenever I tried to update the configuration settings the changes doesn’t take place even though a message is displayed that it was successfully changed. Same thing with the shop, just by adding the item into the cart doesn’t work anymore or any related dynamic actions in the frontend as well. Basically all these functions are not working now. I reckon maybe because the base url is still not configured? and apparently, I can’t update it.
I tried to look for solution and found this:
To change the base website URL in magento manually edit this table: core_config_data. Change all reference to web/unsecure/host and web/secure/host
or perform sql statements:
update core_config_data set value="unsecure.domain.com" where path=’web/unsecure/host’;
update core_config_data set value="secure.domain.com" where path=’web/secure/host’;
Obviously unsecure.domain.com and secure.domain.com would be your domain.
Is this what I needed? I would truly appreciate your help guys. Thanks.
