I installed wordpress on opensuse, running apache2 - no problems.
I saw it when i hit http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress.
I wish to just hit http://www.mydomain.com (without /wordpress). So i use ProxyPass mod for apache2:
ProxyPass / http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress
...inside my virtual host directive.
When i hit http://www.mydomain.com, it just hangs - never loads, and i see (in the access logs of apache2):
GET /wordpress/error/HTTP_BAD_GATEWAY.html.var HTTP/1.1" 404 1041
Its as if once i forward via the proxy - that wordpress is trying to retrieve from a non-relative URL (or something?).
Can wordpress be used with a proxy pass in this way? Or is it forever stuck in "/wordpress"? What does wordpress do when it returns content / queries files / db's, etc? What are the URLS?
Please, please - any help, appreciated!
