There may be an occasion where you must change the URL for PrestaShop installation because it's simply moving from one folder to another on the same server. This means that the database would remain in the same location, but the files would all shift to a different location on the server. The following article explains how to make the URL change within the OpenCart 1.5 database.
In order to make this change you will need to have access to your PrestaShop backoffice or the database. You will also need to know the new address that you will be using for the change. The changes will be shown with the Cpanel File Manager, the Administrator Dashboard and the PhpMyAdmin.
The easiest way to make URL changes is to actually login to he Administrator Dashboard and then go to the SEOS and URLs section. Here are some quick steps to help your entry:
You can also make these changes directly in the databases. The following steps take you through making these changes directly through the database program called PHPMYADMIN.
Once the files have been moved, the next major step is to make the change in the database. To edit the database, you will need to go into PHPMYADMIN. This application is found under the Database section of the Cpanel. Open the application by double-clicking on it in Cpanel.
Changing the URL for website is a quick process when using the built-in interface, but it can also be done directly in the database if necessary. Note that changes affect the operation of the software and should only be changed as necessary. There may sometimes be issues with the URL for the shop after this type of change. If FRIENDLY URLS (located on the same page of the Administrator dashboard as the shop URL changes described in this article) were previously set, you may need to turn this function off and save the change. Then turn it back on again after checking to make sure that the website pages were operating correctly.
