So long story short, someone told me about BACKUPBUDDY and how good it is, etc, and it is...now long story short, one of my clients, wants to move their site from FATCOW to HOSTGATOR.
I went in, created the backup with BACKUPBUDDY on the old site(fat cow), then went to the new site and migrated the info.(into hostgator)
now obviously for testing and other edits they want made,etc i log into the server or view the new site on the browser with their IP address.(host gator the new one)...and i havent pointed the domains to new site yet....
now that said, i noticed that when i use for example, "ip address / wp-login.php" it logs me in but then when i look up in the address bar, it says the FATCOW(old server) name/domain instead of the IP.
so instead of seeing "ip addy /wplogin " i see " full name of site/wp-login "
So my quesiton is , whats happening? if i cant fix this, i cant really test to make sure all is okay b4 pointing the nameservers.
Any ideas as to whats going on? im a bit of a WP noob so...
Thanks in advanced.
