WordPress: domain name change and wp-admin has stopped working

I know that the topic does not concern the BigData issue in any way, but maybe is looking solution to this problem, to the point! 🙂


I had to change domain on the WorldOfEvelyn blog. I wanted to avoid creating a new database and reinstalling WordPress. I connected a new domain, but when I tried to run the wp-admin administrative potral it redirected me to the old domain. In short, the administration panel has stopped working. Hmm ..


The solution to the problem turned out to be very simple. It was enough to update two values in the wp_options table in the database in the option_value column for options:

  • siteurl
  • home

Update values using the new domain name and the problem will be solved 🙂
