I am being redirected to an old dev site domain (that I changed in Local recently - I know, shouldn’t have done this in hind sight). I swear I have tried everything…
- I went directly into Adminer and searched and replaced everything I could find, EXCEPT one file that I don’t have permissions to edit: information_schema/processlist
wp search-replace '//olddomain.com' '//newdomain.com' - nothing came up.
grep -R "olddomain.com" . but it only returned results from access/error logs
- I have defined
None of this has solved my issue. I am able to view the site with Local’s Live Link but I really need this to work without internet…
/wp-admin works but the redirect only happens when trying to view the [dev] site domain.
Having the same problem. I downloaded a backup from a Flywheel site and imported into Local. Keeps taking me to my Flywheel site rather than on my machine. Live internet link works though. Help?
If you enable “Dev Mode” (top-right of site info page) does the issue go away?
Thanks for the response. No, it still redirects.
What is the site name on Flywheel? I can try to reproduce the issue if you’d like.
Also, feel free to private message me the name of the site in case you can’t say it publicly.
@clay Annunciation Dev. Thanks!
@clay Hey there - Thought I’d check in to see if you’d had a chance to look into it? Thanks for your help.
It looks like Local got confused on the import since there are two different WP table sets in the SQL file.
So, to fix the site after importing, I simply change
$table_prefix in wp-config.php to
Then, I ran the
search-replace command like so:
wp search-replace "//annunciationdev.flywheelsites.com" "//dev-domain-here.dev"
After that, you may want to enable Dev Mode so you can see the domain changes.
I tried this and it’s still forwarding. Any other ideas? I’ve never had a problem downloading and importing a site into Local before so I’m not sure what changed in this process since the last time I did it.
I had the same issue and had to change https to http in siteurl and home. See my post here Fixed: 301 redirect loop on newly restored/cloned site
