In this tutorial we will show you how to change your Joomla! domain name. For example you may have your Joomla! website on exampleA.com, and want to change it to exampleB.com.
Changing Your Domain Name:
- Locate the configuration.php file, it is in the Joomla! root folder.
- Then using a file editor such as File manager, or FileZilla, locate the following line of code:
public $live_site = 'http://exampleA.com';
- Enter the new domain name in place of the exampleA.com, then save the code.
It should look like this:
public $live_site = 'http://exampleB.com';
Your website will now be configured to load with the new domain name.
Congratulations, now you know how to change your domain name in Joomla!
