Manually Updating the WordPress home and siteurl Options
There will be times when SpinupWP will attempt to update your site’s
siteurl options. However, there are some cases in which this operation might fail (if you’ve manually updated the options already or if you’re using
WP_SITEURL in wp-config.php, for example). In these cases, SpinupWP will show you a warning alerting you that the options will need to be updated manually.
To update the options manually:
- Connect to your database using the CLI or your favorite app
- Find the
- Update the
siteurlrows as required
- Clear the object caching, using WP-CLI
wp cache flush
If you are using
WP_SITEURL in your wp-config.php you should also update those:
define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://example.com' ); define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com' );
For more information on changing the site URL in WordPress see this doc.
If your site continues to redirect to the old domain, make sure that you’ve cleared both the object cache and page cache. If the problem persists, it’s possible that your browser is caching the redirect. You can confirm this by checking the response of cURL on the command line:
$ curl -I http://example.com HTTP/2 200 server: nginx date: Mon, 27 Jan 2020 09:43:45 GMT content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 vary: Accept-Encoding x-frame-options: SAMEORIGIN x-content-type-options: nosniff x-xss-protection: 1; mode=block fastcgi-cache: MISS
If a 200 response is returned, the redirect is local to your browser and you should clear your browser cache.
