New droplet redirects to existing one. Why?

November 5, 2013 2.5k views
Hi, I took a snapshot of my droplet (cpustorage.com - 192.241.182.149) and used it to create a new droplet (162.243.78.47). I also configured packcrew.com to go to this new droplets IP address and droplet. However, when I go to either 162.243.78.47 or packcrew.com, the browser automatically redirects to cpustorage.com. Can you help me with this? My goal was to create a new site at packcrew.com and use cpustorage.com as a template which I will then modify to my new needs. Thanks!

Hello,

Assuming from the tags you used, you are using Wordpress. Have you updated the Wordpress database to use the new domain instead of the old domain? I would try this; http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-change-wordpress-domain-name-using-phpmyadmin
Log into your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Settings => General. What's listed as your WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL)? Make sure you have them set to packcrew.com.
Thanks both of you for the responses; I really appreciate it. Nate, I tried following your directions but don't know how to access PhpMyAdmin. If I try 162.243.78.47/phpmyadmin there is nothing there.

And Pablo, in settings => General I don't the option to change the URLs. I am using Wordpress Multisite, does that matter? Also, when I am in the settings, it still says cpustorage.com in the URL bar, so aren't I just changing the settings on my original site that I don't want to change? How do I actually access the site on my new droplet if it always redirects to cpustorage.com?
Check out Changing The Site URL | WordPress Codex; particularly, the Multi-site notes section @ the bottom of the page.
Thanks, Pablo. This seems helpful and it seems like I've got my work cut out for me. I'll give it a shot tonight. Thanks!
