    I am attempting to login for the first time after installation. Instead of going to
    http://www.tuftux.com/momreport/wp-login.php

    it goes to the following:
    http://www.tuftux.comhttp://www.tuftux.com/momreport/wp-login.php

    What have I done wrong?

    I should have mentioned also that this is a second wordpress installation on this server, but not on this domain. I used a different prefix other than wp_ .

    Looks like siteurl is wrong.
    Do you have phpmyadmin ? if so, you can fix it:

    using phpmyadmin fixed that problem, but now when I click on "view site", it doesn't return to the proper directory. It returns to the root domain.

    Probably something else in mysql, eh?

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the help on the first problem.

    Did you check both siteurl and home values ?

    I didn't at first, but have since. Even after making sure those two were correct, it still goes back to :

    http://www.tuftux.com/

    instead of :

    http://www.tuftux.com/momreport/

    I did leave the trailing / off in the database.

    I have gone to the admin page in http://www.tuftux.com/momreport
    1. clicked on options
    2. observed general page
    3. blog address is blank, I attempt to enter "http://www.tuftux.com/momreport " (without the quotes) and then click on update options. It says it saved the changes, but blog address is blank again. Everything else is still there.
