Using DNS to point to WordPress installation in subdirectory (1 post)

    I have a dummy WordPress installation at greeningbrum.co.uk/expt
    My host is hostnine.com, using Cpanel, with addon domains enabled
    I keep all my domain names at 1&1.co.uk
    I can get greeningbrum.co.uk/brumnet/index.html to show as brumnet.co.uk, and greeningbrum.co.uk/brumnet/page1 shows as brumnet.co.uk page1. (by editing the DNS at 1&1)
    I am trying to do the same for wordpress installations, using other domain names.
    I have tried this without changing the WordPress address and the blog address in General Settings, changing each of them in turn, and changing both of them. Nothing works. In one case I had to go into phpMyAdmin to reset them, because I couldn't access my blog from the old address either.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Chris
