Can't delete my previous question; so I'm editing it to show the answer in case it helps someone else.

I copied a website to a different domain, and the website didn't use the new url. I finally found an answer. I needed to go into the WP-config.php file and add 2 lines after DB-Collate to point the website to the new url.

define('WP_HOME','http://mynewurl.com');
define('WP_SITEURL','http://mynewurl.com');


So Issue resolved.

Hi LLFiggs,

Thanks for posting the solution to your problem! I checked our Support Center to see if we had this content listed. I did find it, but it was under our article on using WordPress with your temporary URL.

Glad to see you were able to figure this one out though. If there is anything we can help with, just ask, we're happy to lend a hand.

Thanks!
