Sometimes if you have changed domains (for example from a localhost or test environment to the live domain) you will need to edit the value for the live_site variable in the configuration.php file found in the root directory of your Joomla site files. The value of the variable must be manually edited, it cannot be accessed via the Global Configuration screens.

Typically, it would look like:

var $live_site> = 'http://example.com';

 

Or, if you access your website in a sub-folder called joomla, it would be like this:

var $live_site = 'http://example.com/joomla'; 

 

When you move domains, this value may need updating to reflect your new domain name:

var $live_site = 'http://mynewdomain.com';

 

Often, there is no need to specify this variable at all – in which place simply leave it blank:

var $live_site => '';
