I am trying to localize an extension i bought from Magento store.

http://www.sitename.com/extname/ to http://www.sitename.com/myext

I have changed the config.xml file to do this change.


But the url doesn't change. Any thoughts? I am new to Magento.

When dealing with the config.xml the first place I normally look is at the cache. There is a complete cache type called Configuration that stores the config and local xml files.

You can clear the cache in one of two ways.

  1. Admin section System->Configuration->Cache Management
  2. Remove files under /var/cache

I would suggest that if you are doing some development to disable cache at first as it can be a pain to have to keep clearing it. But I would always test with cache enabled afterwards to make sure that you get the desired results.
