Okay, I have two domains pointing towards the one server a '.com' and a .cymru.

At first the .cymru domain was the main domain and .com the alias for it and I want to make the .com the main domain. in plesk its not possible to do this without creating a new webspace.

So I removed .com as the alias and gave it its own webspace and cloned the site into its httpdocs.

At first I pointed it to the same database and then changed the base urls to .com in the mga_core_config_data table. It still redirects to the .cymru domain.

So I decided to clone the database so I could test it without messing with the .cymru site. It too defaults and redirects the .com to the .cymru site.

I followed information in the article below

Magento Redirects to Old Website regardless of what changes are made!

I have cleared all caches and restarted the server.

I tried removing the database connection and then a used new browser and got the magento welcome page, as soon as I reconnected back to the database it redirected to the .cymru again.

I am at a loss, server stuff really isnt my strong point, can anyone help please?


  • Do reindexing and clear cache and check again – Murtuza Zabuawala Dec 8 '16 at 11:20
  • Remove cache and check .htaccess if there is any redirect done for the old url – Vlad Patru Dec 8 '16 at 11:22
  • How can i reindex and clear cache if it redirects to old site everytime? i would just be clearing the cache for the old site. – Random_Guy_a Dec 8 '16 at 11:25
  • I have removed cache and checked the htaccess, the htaccess is the generic magento version, no url specifics in there – Random_Guy_a Dec 8 '16 at 11:26
  • @Random_Guy_a is your issue solved? – zus Nov 13 '17 at 6:20
