When I change the base url in the Magento admin panel it doesn't work. I think it's hard coded somewhere but can't find this file.
You have to follow these three steps:
go to your admin panel and change your base url
System > Configuration > General > Web : Unsecure and Securethen clear your cache and reindex all.
Find your current header, footer, etc.. with enabling a
Path hint, if you don't know how please follow this.
Atfer finding the current file
header.phtmlfor exemple, you can now check if you have the base url hard coded or dynamically, the dynamic one looks like:
Nb: Don't forget to clear the browser and Magento cache.
Go into your database using PhpMyAdmin (or whichever database management software you're using) and open the
core_config_data table. In here you need to find to replace the values of
web/secure/base_url with your new base URL.
After you've done this, clear
/var/cache/ and see if it then works.
