Help!! URL Redirection problem! (4 posts)

    I have installed the wordpress on a Linux machine. But because i am not the only user on this machine, i could only install the wordpress in the /home/myname/.public_html/wordpress directory, which causes a problem when i redirect my domain to this machine.
    So, let's say this linux machine has the real name "machine.thedomain.com", so i could use wordpress under the link "http://machine.thedomain.com/~myname/wordpress/" WITHOUT problems. But when i want to redirect all request on http://www.mydomain.com to machine.thedomain.com/~myname/wordpress, all the pages DON'T work!
    I have tried to read the source code and i thought the problem is by the two variable siteurl and home. Therefore, I try to modify the entries in wp_options directly in the database, but it doesn't work too.
    Who has such experience and could help me? Thanks a lot!

    Does http://www.mydomain.com by default point to machine.thedomain.com/~myname ?
    If yes, then put index.php in the root (myname) folder and change the Blog URI to be http://www.mydomain.com and the WP URI to be http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress/ and it will work.
    Otherwise, contact your host about having http://www.mydomain.com by default to point to machine.thedomain.com/~myname

    Thanks for the reply!
    I have done all the modification you said. But it still doesn't work.
    Some more details about the errors:
    I can successfully log into the system. But after i give my name and password, the page is not redirected to wp-admin/post.php(what normally should be!) and i see the wp-login.php again. And now if i type directly in the browser "http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress/wp-admin/post.php" i can see the wonderful page, what means that the login prozedure has run properly and only the page redirection is not ok. I have tried to change the wp-login.php file at the position header("Location: $redirect_to") but it seems also not to work.
    I hope that i have explained my question clearly. My english is not so good :-)
    Thanks for any suggestions!

    It probably is just a browser cookie problem. Try logging in after clearing the cookies in the browser, you don't need to hack or change anything.
