We change webshop from Magento2 to a new platform next week and would like to know if you can log into Magento after moving the domain. Do we still have acces to the backend and our orders? Hope anyone can help with a yes or a no. :-)

Thanks! Monica


Could be either yes or no. Is the old domain being dropped? If so you need to speak to whoever is in charge of the migration. Ideally you want to go from this



To this



With a subdomain



Then you can get to your old data via archive.newdomain.com/oldadminpanel

This is the most cost effective solution for most. Also that way you are asking that the old site is maintained in terms of data and files. Otherwise you might lose something.

If the old domain isn't being dropped access will be maintained for as long as you continue to pay for hosting for old domain.

access your backend by IP address:

php bin/magento setup:store-config:set --base-url=""

php bin/magento setup:store-config:set --use-secure=0

php bin/magento cache:flush

where is your old IP address. that simple.
