How to change the Crowd URL and domain and keep SSO working?

I am trying to change the URL (and IP) of my local, standalone Crowd instance, but it will not accept my new domain.

I changed the URLs in crowd.properties; changed the allowed remote addresses of registered applications; and changed the Crowd URL for the user directories in the remote applications (in this case, Confluence).

The changes did not go smoothly (e.g. I had to tweak the domain attribute directly in the database), but eventually, I got everything working except SSO.

Now, I keep getting this error (from the crowd logs):

Invalid SSO Domain value: '.newdomainname.com' found in settings. Domain currently in use is: 'oldhostanme.olddomainname.com'.

I have searched the entire installation and home folders for the "oldhostname" and I cannot find it. I have also searched the cwd_property table in the database.

Any suggestions?

Addendum:

I'm running Apache but not using Virtual Hosts.

SSO is working now, but I still get the error message about the SSO domain value.

The problem with the SSO was that the Authenticator class in Confluence was not the SSO authenticator class (missed this during an upgrade).
