Obviously I’m trying to fix a lot of URL issues with my live site migration that point back to my old staging site.
I installed the basic version, then upgraded to pro (both are active).
I then entered the old URL: http://qg6.ebd.myftpupload.com/
I entered my new URL: https://adtutoring.com/
Hit the test button and got:
Verify the Old URL and New URL have matching trailing slashes.
Both urls have a trailing slash.
Verify the Old URL and New URL have matching structures.
Both urls have a scheme.
Verify this site is accessible from the New URL.
This site is accessible from the New URL.
So everything looks fine, I have a backup so not too worried, I click on the “Update URLS” button and after a couple seconds I get:
There has been a critical error on your website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.
I click back and refresh the page, click on the Previous Actions made to the site URL just to see if anything was recorded and I see:
Site Address (URL) History

Why is it using the Old URL with the value of the New URL? There is a redirect for that Old URL to the New URL (ie if you enter it you will be redirected to the new URL) but I didn’t expect that it would impact this… if that is indeed whats happening.
I suppose I can do this the manual way inside the database but I was hoping for a plugin fix that would be quick and easy 🙂
