Where is the path set? (Problems changing URI) (6 posts)

    Hi, I hope someone can help!

    I have set up a WP site for my wife, it works fine but I want to change the WordPress address to her domain name (www.raspberry.co.uk) rather than the location on our hosting (www220.pair.com/bloor/WPraspberry).

    Problem is when I change the address settings for the application, it updates this ok but there is a path set somewhere which isn't updated when I change these location settings so then WordPress can't find anything and the whole site is screwed!

    It starts to tag on this path on the end of the domain name which is wrong and nothing works.

    Where can I change the path which the application uses? I think this would probably fix it.

    Thanks,

    John

    Do you mean the WP and Blog URI's in Options:General?

    Also: Has her domain name been propagated ok?

    Yes I mean the URIs in Options > General and yes the domain name has been used for ages.

    The domain name is not the issue, the issue is that WP is tagging on what it thinks is the path to WP on the end of the domain name and I can't change that path.

    Cheers!

  4. Works fine for me: http://www.raspberry.co.uk/index.php?p=89

    Are you sure you're setting the URL correctly? You need to set both URLs to http: //www.raspberry.co.uk (no space).

    Erm...it works now!

    Thanks guys..maybe I was getting a caching problem. Changed both URLs and it's now fine.

    Thanks!
