I had an issue with the Drupal installation on local setup that the login links are redirected to live. I have changed cookies name and base URL for my local environment, I have also emptied all cache tables, but still it redirects to the live site.
The following procedure I did to get the redirection correctly to my local environment
- Check the .htaccess file.
There might be some rules to redirect on live site.
- Check your settings.php file - Is there any path set to your live site.
- Check If you are using any Drupal redirect module. If yes than disable that module than try.
- My guess is your using the secure login module.
drush vset securelogin_base_url "http://server1/mysitename/user"
drush dis securelogin
or,Run the following query
UPDATE variable SET value = 's:1:"0";' WHERE name = 'securepages_enable';
pass this query in db and flush all cache..
