migrated website

I had wordpress site hosted with flywheel.

 

I bought a VPS with GoDaddy, and installed a cPanel. I named the cPanel new.mydomain.com

 

I migrated my site over and once I got everything working, I made the following changes:

 

I changed the name of the cPanel in WHM from new.mydomain.com to mydomain.com

 

I changed the settings in WordPress from new.mydomain.com to mydomain.com

 

I changed siteurl and home in the database from new.mydomain.com to mydomain.com (even though I didn't think I needed to, I thought when you updated it in the WP settings it updated the DB but apparently I was wrong)

 

I pointed the DNS for mydomain.com to my VPS IP

 

For some reason, when I type mydomain.com it redirects to new.mydomain.com

 

if I type https://mydomain.com it works (although much slower than it did before I installed the SSL)

 

why is it still redirecting to new.mydomain.com? What have I forgotten to change?

I don't know why I'm using a fake domain, I might as well just tell you maybe it would help you troubleshoot. My website is chromebook.guide.

 

I don't need to use https to login to admin. chromebook.guide/wp-admin works just fine. But chromebook.guide redirects to new.chromebook.guide

Hi there,

You did all this after you set up your server to your liking ?

Could all be your server ......

Hope this gives you something to think about.

This tells me nothing

When you get a nice shiny new server, you have to set your server up.....

Did you do this first?
