    "You will now just have to login as the administrator and have WordPress clear its cache so that it starts using the new address."

    Can anybody tell how this is done?

    Where does that quote come from? If it's on the codex, you might find what you seek there. I must say, I've never come across this, it might be a good idea to google for that, and post the answer here, it would be good for future users.

    Plugin Name: Admin Cache Disabler

    I don't put the URL, maybe because I'dont know if this action it's aproved.

    Or just ftp to your server and delete what's under /wp-content/cache if you're using the built in wp2.x caching.

    >Where does that quote come from?

    I had problems with the URL for my blog not showing up correctly because it is in a subfolder of my public, so I wrote my hosting company and asked. The reply was:

    "However, I have updated your WordPress database so that it uses the correct URL. You will now just have to login as the administrator and have WordPress clear its cache so that it starts using the new address."

    @gutielua: yes, you can post URLs here!

    1. Remove entire wp-cache directory from wp-content.
    2. Open wp-config.php and add below line to permanently disable cache in 2.0.2.

    define('DISABLE_CACHE', true);

    Actually, there's some confusing information above...

    First, I believe under 2.0.2, the object caching system is disabled by default. And really, nobody who isn't a server systems expert should bother turning it on...

    Second, the folder is (I believe) [wp]/wp-content/cache. The only 'wp-cache' folder I know of would be for the WP-Cache 2 plugin, which is a COMPLETELY different thing entirely. (If using WP-Cache, you can just go into its options page, and clear its cache from there...)

    If your wp-content is writable, then cache is ON by default in 2.0.2

    If your wp-content is NOT writable, then cache is not written but you see no error.

    It is therefore ON.

    Do EXACTLY what Rok advises.
