How to change Prestashop Site URL

This Knowledge base is projected to help in changing your Prestashop URL. This example is using Prestashop 1.6.1.24. Versions might differ slightly.

If the Prestashop installation is still working correctly, you can use the Admin area to make this change.

  • Log in to the admin area.
  • Go to Preferences > SEO & URLs.
  • Scroll down to ‘SET SHOP URL’.
  • Update the ‘Shop domain’ and ‘SSL domain’ fields.
  • Click Save
