Can't access log in after moving wordpress (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I am trying to move wordpress to an add-on domain on my server.

    i have followed the instructions on the codex but it is still not working.

    the database seems to be linking up (i.e. i can see my content) but i can't get wordpress to load - so no theme etc.

    mydomain.com/wordpress/wp-admin - gives a 404 error

    i have checked the database for siteurl

    i think i may have different url's in siteurl (WordPress address URL) and home (Blog Address URL) fields - but can't see where to change home?

    any help would be appreciated.

    thanks

  2. Go to your wordpress database, and find the table for wp-options.

    Look for siteurl and home and change the values accordingly.

    did it thank you.

    i have now home (it was on another page)
    AND
    unbelievably i had forgotten to put the /wordpress directory at the end of the url!

    sometimes the thing that is most obvious is least obvious!
