I just finished installing WordPress for the first time - so I am new at this.
I've installed WordPress in a directory called 'Boomer-Blog' (I own the boomer-blog.com domain) under the htdocs directory which is the main document directory for my Apache web server. My main personal web site is http://www.desautel.net, and going to it opens the index.htm file in the htdocs directory.
I do not have a static IP address, so I use a dynamic DNS service. The service also provides a thing called webhop, which allows you to redirect requests for other domains that you might own to a subdirectory on your main site.
I did the same thing with boomer-blog.com, which actually sends you to http://www.desautel.net/Boomer-Blog/. This works OK, and will take me to the main wordpress blog page on my Linux machine.
The problem I'm having is that the meta links at the bottom-right of the main page do not work correctly. Choosing the 'login' link does take me to the login page, but after entering my information and clicking on 'login', the page just refreshes itself and erases the data I entered.
However, at this point the page HAS logged me in. If I hit the browser refresh button, it takes me back to the main blog page, and the 'login' meta link has now changed to 'logout'.
However, the 'site admin' link is worse. Using that link just refreshes the main blog page. If I open the link in a new window, I get a blank window, even the address bar is blank. Refreshing here does nothing.
If I enter http://www.boomer-blog.com/wp-admin/ in the browser address bar, I get the same blank page, except the address remains in the address bar. Refreshing does nothing.
If I enter http://www.boomer-blog.com/wp-admin/index.php, I get the same blank page.
Anyone have any ideas??
