New domain setup

I am trying to set my store up so that it can be accessed from a new domain name.

I have installed a domain alias and pointed it to the home directory of my virtual hosting account.

I have then proceeded to input the new domain name into the /config.php and admin/config.php file. After making this change I can access the store from the new domain name BUT none of the product pictures load up. What am I doing wrong?

Note: I have cleared my browser cache and cookies so this is not a cache issue with my computer.

Make sure you updated your nameservers with your domain registrar and check your .htaccess file to make sure there is not a redirect to the old domain.

Try exporting your database via phpmyadmin, and try to replace all urls in the old domain, with your new domain url.

You can open your .sql file using notepad ++.

After the old url changes, try importing your data base back to phpmyadmin.
