New forum redirects to old. - Cierra - 2020-04-20

I downloaded a backup of my forum that was located on one domain and then had my host restore this backup onto a new domain. There seems to be a conflation of the forum's old domain and the new one. The forum's new domain (ex. keeps redirecting to the old domain ( whenever certain links are clicked (login, admin control panel, member list, search, portal, etc). I am not able to login to the ACP either. It's like there are two copies of the forum right now. Additionally, when I click on a forum post on the new domain I get the following error:
Quote:Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Start with the obvious: Do the files actually exist? If they do, check the permissions on the files.

board url & cookie settings should be correctly set first in ./inc/settings.php
file & then at Site Details page of Configuration section in forum admin panel.
