Deploying Magento

This is a guide to help you update your URL after you move your site from one environment to another. For example if you have your website on your localhost and now you want to publish it. You will need to change your URL to reflect this.

Find Rows to update
select * from core_config_data where path = 'web/unsecure/base_url';

Next you will need this one:
select * from core_config_data where path = ‘web/secure/base_url’;

You may need this:
select * from core_config_data where path = ‘admin/url/custom’;

* remember you might have to put in your table prefix if you are using one

If you have multiple store BE CAREFUL and note the config_id numbers for each row, that is how we will ensure that we can the results we want!

Each query will return something like this

‘261’, ‘default’, ‘0’, ‘web/unsecure/base_url’, ‘http://your.dev-domain.com/’

You need to note the first column which is your config_id, each id is unique and we can use that to update just the row we want to update. This will ensure you don’t update a wrong row or more rows than you wanted.
