Question

problem Wordpress down after change url

After changing the url of my wordpress installation from the local IP to domain name, the wp-log or wp-admin site won´t load. The home page as well as the post are working but it is still showing the IP adress instead of the domain (but just showing, if I type in the domain name it directs me to the site). Can anyone help me?

Did you updated the references in the database? You need to check the home and siteurl rows in the wp_options table (the table might have a different prefix, but you need to access the options table). The references need to match the domain name. If they’re still set with the IP address, change them to the actual domain name.

Can you check your wp-config.php file for references of the IP address? Also if you can explain what have you done when changing the site name from the IP address to the domain name, as in this way we will know for sure what it’s already done.
