Every time that I have to move a PrestaShop site, developing or supporting XT Search for Algolia, I face the same dilemma. I follow the steps recommended in the official Best Development Practices: How can I migrate my PrestaShop store to a new server? Still, after downloading the backup, restoring the files, restoring the database and configuring app/config/parameters.php I got redirected to the original domain!

The problem is simple, you restore the site, you test the new site and ...

~$ curl -I https://demo-prestashop.localhost/

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Date: Wed, 01 Apr 2020 16:58:07 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)
Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains
Location: https://demo-prestashop.extly.com/
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

The solution: replace the domain that is repeated four times in the database tables! ... and, of course, the domain is also in the .htaccess.

  • Table `dbprefix_configuration`, records PS_SHOP_DOMAIN and PS_SHOP_DOMAIN_SSL
  • Table `dbprefix_shop_url`, fields `domain` and `domain_ssl`

That's it! Clear the cache and no more redirections.

curl -I https://demo-prestashop.localhost/

To the moon!

Webmasters Team structure:

We have analysed the purpose of the team, the members, the responsibilities and other aspects, which brought us to the conclusion that the different members had totally different understanding of the team. (It's a collection of Team Leaders, not a official team, a cooperation group, an many more differences)

We decided to discuss this future and make it clear for everybody in agreement with the board.

  • It's an official team managing all website
