:8888 port being added to url after site is live (5 posts)

    I've got a tricky problem here. Everything I've searched for on this leads me to issues involving local sites. I did design a site locally, then transfered it to a live setup, but had so many problems with the wp-config.php file that I finally deleted the database and all wp files on my server to start over with a fresh wp install.

    One problem I had before starting fresh was that when I pointed the browser to the url, http://www.bespokeberlin.co.uk, it automatically added :8888 to the end. So it shows up like this: http://bespokeberlin.co.uk:8888/

    I thought deleting everything and starting anew would solve it, but, alas, it hasn't. The internal pages are working fine. (See: http://bespokeberlin.co.uk/how-it-works-tenants-2/ and any of the links except for Home)

    I did a search in the database, but :8888 and 8888 turn up nothing. I've run across a few people posting about this problem on some websites, but no answers on how to fix it.

    Oh, I also took a look at the .htaccess file, but didn't see anything there mentioning the 8888 port.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Help would be very much appreciated!!

  2. Looks like it's not doing it now. Have you tried clearing you browser's cache?

    I just visited your site and I'm not getting any redirection to port 8888.

  4. Not a problem, glad it was an easy one to sort out. :D

    Hi this might be a little late but I just had the same problem.
    Solution that worked for me was quite simple. Using find & replace search for 8888 and replace 8888 one at a time with the desired URL.
    There will only be a few that need to be changed. It's seemed that the find & replace function skipped a few plugins associated to the database.
    Hope this helps good luck.
