Wordpress Double Loading


I am a bit stuck. I have a wordpress website.

http://rawpower.degrama.com (temp on new server)

http://rawpowercanada.com (old server)

However, when I test on the new server using pingdom. It seems to be loading both... but I'm not sure why, I cannot seem to find any references to the old website.

Did you change the URLs in Settings > General ?
UltraFluxAuthor Commented:
yes, all basic stuff done

db - options
general - changed
When you copied the database to the new server, did you open the mysql export and do a search and replace for all instance of the old server's path?

The domain url itself will update by changing in the wp-admin settings, but the server path needs to be manually done. The one that looks similar to this:

I usually go ahead and do a search and replace on the domain url too while I'm doing that. That covers any page links etc that might be forgotten about from pages or plugins.

I recommend to log into your database (PHPmyadmin) and search for the URL in for example the database table wp_options. I think there still something pointing to the old website. Or try this plugin to update the URLs http://www.velvetblues.com/web-development-blog/wordpress-plugin-update-urls/

And your wp-config.php needs to point to the right domain

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://www.example.com');
define('WP_HOME', 'http://www.example.com');
