[resolved] WordPress Address URL vs Site Address URL (1 post)

    OK, a little confused here.

    I have a Windows test server with a host name/ip address. I have setup a entry in the hosts file:
    127.0.0.1 weather-disruption
    I can ping weather-disruption and get the address 127.0.0.1.

    I have setup a site in wordpress in a folder under htdocs named 'snowdesk'. I can browse to http://localhost/snowdesk, http://weather-disruption/snowdesk

    If I setup the WordPress address and site address url's like this:
    Worddpress Address URL - http://weather-disruption/snowdesk
    Site Address URL - http://weather-disruption

    And I navigate to http://weather-disruption should this not give the site and not the default "it works!"? If not, what is the point in using the site address url field?

    Thanks!
