Updating a URL/Domain in 5.7
It might be the heat wave and no AC, or the smoke from forest fires, but I cannot for the life of me find any information on changing the domain/URL of a site in Concrete5.7.
Just so it's super clear, the client has a live site and so I developed the new site under a subdomain of my own domain name. We're ready to go live and I need to update the 5.7 instance to their domain name so I can redirect the DNS records to point to the new site.
This used to be simple in config.php. but I can't find any obvious method for this now, nor any documentation to walk me through it. Any help would be appreciated.
Essentially, I need the 5.7 version of how to do this:https://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/editors/controlling-...
While it's pretty simple, after coming from a slightly more complex process, this would be a nice piece of documentation to have had. If I get some time to test things a bit more, I'll write up a How To so it's easy to find the answer when looking.
I am facing the same issue here. We are trying to move over our site onto our LAN connection from our dev's server. As far as I know, everything has been set up, the files are in a root folder on our server, I have loaded and configured the sql database to 'localhost' but I have no idea how to actually launch or access the new version of the site.
We are using IIS to run the site on our servers.
We have set up the DNS and created a new domain name, and the /application files seem to be getting picked up through our IIS server, but we still have no idea how to access the site under the new domain!
Any solutions would be appreciated, thanks!
- DNS is setup with the correct domain name and pointed at the server
- In the settings where you turn on pretty URLs, the canonical links are set to the site name.
- In cPanel (or whatever hosting software), the domain name is set on the account and not under a dev domain.
- Check your .htaccess for any overrides that might be causing issues.
I set the canonical sites to our newly purchased domain,prior to arranging a hosting location for the domain and site.
Now, when I try to log into Concrete5 to make edits it goes to the Go Daddy page (where the domain was purchased)
How do I gain access to this site? Can I just delete and start over?
