New Site redirects to old dev site

We built a test website (magento CE 1.9.1)  in a development environment, and recently moved it to a new domain to finish testing before deployment.  We followed all suggestions, changing core_config_data entries for web/secure/base_url and web/unsecure_base_url, emptied all cache files manually (now empty directories) and the site still redirects to the old url.  Is there someplace else we need to change?  This is very frustrating.

Hi @semidetech,

 

Have you checked the htaccess file for a rewrite rule, ex:

 

############################################
## enable rewrites

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

############################################
## you can put here your magento root folder
## path relative to web root

RewriteBase /

@chiefair:  You are a star.  I saw the first two links on Stack, but the last one about permissions and a cache file in /tmp was the key.  Thank You!!!!

Re: New Site redirects to old dev site

You don't know what pain that one caused me many years ago. You could reboot the server and the problem would go away. Well, duh, the system /tmp folder gets emptied on OS reload. Now asking your hosting provider to reboot their server because of it just isn't gonna happen, eh?

 

Set the permissions and the amazing zombie configuration that keeps reemerging from the grave goes away.
