[Solved] WAMP Localhost redirects to Live site

Post by Nross » Wed Feb 20, 2013 3:23 pm

I am hoping someone reads this and laughs at what I am overlooking.

I copied a current Joomla site into a new WAMP folder using Kickstart. I have done this successfully three times in the past when creating a new but similar site. I make the changes to the old site in WAMP and then upload it to the host with Kickstart. It saves me a great deal of time.

This time the backend works going to localhost\”newsite.com”\administrator, but the frontend goes to the current live site at “currentsite.com”\”newsite.com”.

I have redone this three times with the same result. I have looked in the htaccess, config, and php.ini files and found nothing.

I know one can do this as I have done it in the past.

What am I overlooking?

Thanks.

Stupid me. It was the Canonicalization plugin. As the backend worked, I disabled the plugin and now the frontend works.
