need to add "www" to front of site URL (2 posts)

    I am using Cloudflare and w3 Super Cache and evidently, according to Cloudflare support, I need to change my url to have the "www." in front of it. How is the best way to do this since I'm not really moving my site? I'm worried that if I just change it in the general settings there will be an issue on the database?

    You can achieve this by changing the WordPress Address and Site Address in Settings -> General to your domain with www. prepended to it. This might give you an open_basedir error, but that shouldn't harm the process of changing the site URL - it will only produce this error on saving the settings.
