I just installed WordPress for the first time on my site. When I attempt to login, I'm getting an HTTP 404 error. The problem seems to have to do with the way that my root directory is being determined. The domain I am using for this blog, robbinsinternational.com, is an add-on domain. The directory structure for NetFirms, my host, is set up so that http://www.robbinsinternational.com resolves to a sub-folder (robbinsinternational/) of the root folder for my main domain. I'm not very familiar with the WordPress setup or with the php function that is used to set the root directory for the blog. Can anyone help me with this?
As an example of what is happening, I checked the database after I installed WordPress, and here is what is being set in the wp_options table for the option_value field corresponding to the option_name field 'siteurl': http://www.robbinsinternational.com//robbinsinternational/blog
This should be http://www.robbinsinternational.com/blog , so I need to somehow take out the /robbinsinternational directory that is being included.
Thanks for any help.
