Image path is broken
« on: April 13, 2011, 19:57:33 pm »
OK I updated VM to 1.17 recently. Everything looks great until you click on the product image to view full size. I am getting a 500 error, I know why now.

Here's what is happening:
I used to have the store located at

New store is located at

When I go to view a larger image of the product it is point towards This is a fresh install and a new database so I do not understand why or even how the old sub domain is being listed as the image paths. The regular thumbnail is fine I upload it and it appears on site, it's only when I click on product image to view larger that the image path gets messed up.

How do I fix this?

I have tried everything and the client is running out of patience.

One possibility is the full path is hard coded with your old site. But even when the url path is incorrect, you should only get 404 error, not 500 error. There seems any cause for this.
