Try following

  • If there are caching plugins installed like W3 total cache. Then purge cache first. Or may be disable them for time being

  • Perform Search and Replace in the database for Old Site URL. You can Use this Plugin

  • Reset Permalinks ( Dashboard >> Settings >> Permalinks )

  • Last but not the least. Clear your browser Cache and History

    • In Chrome, you can try to clear your DNS cache before clearing all your cache
