Could someone help me with restoring my website (with new domain name)? I have a database backup and when restore it, wordpress is redirecting me to old website and domain. I changed site url in mysql and now I have this message: This nataura.ro page can’t be foundNo webpage was found for the web address: https://nataura.ro/wordpress/ HTTP ERROR 404

  • Use a database migration plugin, and double-check that the URL is not set in your wp-config.php file. The site URL is only one of many places that need the new domain, and many of them are serialized, which is why using a plugin to update them all is safer than trying a search-and-replace directly in the database.

First of all, make sure you're domain has correct nameserver setup and you're uploading files to correct place. When you are changing URL from database directly, here's a checklist.

  1. The URL must be changed only from wp_options table and update only siteurl & home (basically first 2) rows.
  2. Make sure you're setting http/https correctly. set https only if you have SSL enabled in the new domain.
  3. Use a plugin like Better Search & Replace to replace domain and update permalinks and other urls.

If it's still pointing to old URL,

  1. Check .htaccess file if there is old domain. If so, replace that. Also be careful about http/https.
  2. Disable any possible plugin that can redirect home page. Just rename the plugin's folder to disable that.
  3. If still doesn't work, try to disable the theme same way.
  4. As last resort replace all core files with fresh downloaded zip file then check wp-config.php file to set correct credentials.
