Remote Publishing Tools Error When Connecting to Blog on Shared Hosting (4 posts)

    Hello

    I have 2 applications that I wish to use to publish to WP sites

    The hosting is with HostGator and GoDaddy (the issue is the same on both)
    2 WP sites in shared hosting account...

    Logically I cannot leave the 2 sets of WP files in the root otherwise it would become messy

    As such I have a separate directory for each WP install

    When I use either tool to publish it fails to connect

    The workaround after much troubleshooting is to edit WP dashboard
    WordPress address (URL) - http://DOMAINNAME.com/DIRECTORY/
    Site address (URL) - http://DOMAINNAME.com/DIRECTORY/

    Before hand they looked like this:
    WordPress address (URL) - http://DOMAINNAME.com/DIRECTORY/
    Site address (URL) - http://DOMAINNAME.com/

    Obviously the latter is preferred as I don't want visitors to "see" the internal directory structure as it's looks and feels untidy

    Does anyone have a long term solution please?

    Trust this reads well

    Thanks

    Phil
