Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin links to localhost and not localhost:8080

  • Resolved Gadren


    I’m setting up a home server at , with a blog at . The problem I’ve having is that when I click on any of the admin links, they link to localhost and not localhost:8080 (I had to set up the server to redirect port 80 since the ISP blocks it). This means that each time I click the admin links, it won’t connect, and I have to manually change the URL to localhost:8080, which is annoying.

    This problem is wordpress-only, since phpmyadmin, for example, will stay in localhost:8080.

    How can I set all the links in wordpress to localhost:8080? Or is there a way to make localhost always redirect to localhost:8080?

    Two URI fields, make sure you have 8080 on ’em?

    When I try to do that, it says that I need to enable sending referrers, and I don’t know how to do that. When I follow what the wordpress site says about that, nothing happens.

    Oh, and can you see the default theme on the wordpress page? For some reason, I only see text. How can I fix that?

    Well, I think I got it working now. Thanks for the help.
