I have installed 3.5.1 multisite at godaddy. The site is hosted in the root of thegalabouttown.com. Using sub-directories I have created a network site thegalabouttown.com/astoriawhiskeysociety.
In the Network dashboard I have changed this site name to http://astoriawhiskeysociety.com, which is a hosted subdomain at godaddy, hosted in the root of thegalabouttown.com.
The odd thing is that while I can view astoriawhiskeysociety.com, log in, make changes in the dashboard, and everything I would wish to do, when I try to visit the site from the dashboard WP thinks the site URL is com/astoriawhiskeysociety/
What is going on?
