Joomla! version: 1.5.26
PHP version: 5.3
MySQL version: 5.1
Host: (optional, but it helps us help you)
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: 3.4.3
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: Used the site transfer wizard
Description of my issue:
New restored site (to a different host) redirects to old one. Please check following example of my setup:
old site: domain.com
new site: domain.com.newhost.myserver.com
I installed a fresh .htaccess file in order to prevent the fact that I might have made any changes on the old one in the past.
On the new host I have installed in a subdirectory. I have declared that in my .htaccess file as instructed on your FAQ on the RewriteBase directive:
Old site was also on a subdir but a different one.
I have changed the $live_site option in my configuration.php as instructed in your FAQ as follows:
$live_site = 'http://domain.com.newhost.myserver.com/newdir';
I do have installed on my site some third party tools that it is possible that they might interfere and redirect me:
In order to prevent possible redirection caused by these components as you have mentioned in your FAQ, I thought of using my PHPMyAdmin and I changed the table prefix for these component's tables from jos_ to jos_bak_. I even did this for my AdminTools component (just in case...).
New restored site still redirects me to the old site...
Could you please suggest any other solution to look at? I am stuck....
