Making a Staging site Live

After creating a staging site and working on it you may want to change the URL (Put it Live)

From the STORM dashboard, click on Websites.

If the current Live site is on your server first we need to change it click the cog icon next to your website to manage your website.

Click on Configuration

After clicking Configuration, Click Change Domain

Type in the new domain, I’d suggest renaming it old. this ensures you have a copy of the current site incase anything goes wrong.

If you recieve this error make sure to remove the SSL or Let’s Encrypt from the site first

Your site is now renamed! For websites with a CMS/ Database you will also need to change the URL in the database via PHPmyAdmin (WordPress) (Magento 1.9/2) if you want to be able to visit the site on the changed URL.

To change the staging URL it is much the same Process

From the STORM dashboard, click on Websites.

Click the cog icon next to your staging website to manage your website.

Click on Configuration

After clicking Configuration, Click Change Domain

Type in the new domain and click change Domain.

Your site is now renamed! For websites with a CMS/ Database you will also need to change the URL in the database via PHPmyAdmin (WordPress) (Magento 1.9/2) if you want to be able to visit the site on the changed URL.

You may need to make changes to the connection string in your application / CMS as well to update the database information.
