Keeps trying to go back to old host.

Post by crossfire39 » Fri Jan 20, 2006 5:35 am

Well I have finally decided to move my forums to an online host. Since the old ones were really trashed, I decided to remake them. So I tried doing it online, but it seemed to hard, so I decided I would build them on my server, then move them over. I moved them over (changed all config values, restored database, cleared cookies) and the index laods fine. But once you click log in, it tries to go to http://wscserver(server name). I ahve no idea why this is. I build the site using that address but now it doesn't want to change. Any suggestions?

BTW I got some users to try and log in, and it redirects them to http://wscserver as well. Even though, when u scroll over the link it shows the correct URL.

Note: http://wscserver is on my network

Autocookies should do the job, the links above.
