[resolved] Site working internally only (2 posts)

    I've got the site setup and running perfectly, as long as I only access it internally (i.e. http://<servername>). I'd like to access it externally (i.e. http://www.blogname.com/), however it seems to use static internal references in all of the links.

    I've tried searching for this issue, but most of the issues I run across is about moving to another server.

    The main page will pull up (but the theme and images fail), but all links fail because they're trying to goto http://<servername&gt; instead of the external or a relative address.

    --edit--
    I've read the relative vs static discussion, and realize that otto abhorrs relative coding :-D So my question has changed to:

    How do change the site wholesale to reflect the external address? Internal DNS re-mapping is not a problem, but I'm finding that just changing the configuration to the outside address isnt working, so it's not going back and "fixing" the existing links/URIs.

    --edit----edit--
    Ok, weird. I swear when I followed the "move" instructions before it didnt work. But this time it just started working.

    Oddness. Musta had a typo or something.

    There are a few options in the database that you can change (blog URL, etc.). Put in the URL you want the blog to be at, move it, and that should do it. To my knowledge, there aren't any files you need to change when moving the installation.
