Question

Transferred snapshot redirects to original default site

Hi,

I transferred a snapshot from one account to another account and created a droplet from it.

I then configured a new site inside it (abc.co.uk). The snapshot had everything on it I needed.

However, once I changed the A record for the new site (abc.co.uk) using the IP of this new droplet, it now always ‘redirects’ to the default site from the snapshot (xyz.co.uk)! I have created conf file for it in ’/etc/apache2/sites-available’ and restarted apache.

Could you possibly tell me what I have missed?

Best regards, Kris…

Hi @kharmer,

What type of website you have, is it a WordPress one or something similar? Additionally, I’ll take it everything in your Apache config file is correct.

I’m asking about the website as sometimes the domain’s name is saved in the database and creates this redirection problem you are mentioning about now.
