    i recently took over a wordpress site that is a sub dormain of an eCommerce site.

    i have installed it on my local wamp and i now wish to log into the wordpress dashboard.

    the problem is that the once i log in to wordpress it redirects me back to the old site.

    i am now trying to work out where the redirect functionality might be located.

    i have already changed the base url address in the table wp_options.

    i also tried changing the wp-config.php file with the new url:


    i would appreciate any ideas on where the redirect functionality might be located.



    It looks like you are getting help for a self-hosted WordPress.org site. This forum is strictly for WordPress.com hosted sites.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are a little separate, and that can be confusing.

    You’ll want to use the forums at https://wordpress.org/support/ for any support on managing your site. Hope that helps to point you in the right direction!
