Make changes to domain name in Opencart install

 

Inorder to change the domain name in Opencart we may need to amend two config files.

First one is in the root folder(/home/$user/public_html/config.php) and the other is in the /admin folder.

You can access the those config.php files either via cPanel filemanager or of course you can use any of the FTP clients to access it.

// HTTP
define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.example.com/');
define('HTTP_IMAGE', 'http://www.example.com/image/');
define('HTTP_ADMIN', 'http://www.example.com/admin/');
 
// HTTPS
define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.example.com/');
define('HTTPS_IMAGE', 'https://www.example.com/image/');
save the file, and set permission to “400” (read-only)

Check that the file “/admin/config.php” is writeable (permission 644), open and via “code editor” edit the following lines:

// HTTP
define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.example.com/admin/');
define('HTTP_CATALOG', 'http://www.example.com/');
define('HTTP_IMAGE', 'http://www.example.com/image/');
 
// HTTPS
define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.example.com/admin/');
define('HTTPS_CATALOG', 'https://www.example.com/');
define('HTTPS_IMAGE', 'https://www.example.com/image/');
Revert back the permission of the file to “400” once you have done the changes.
