[Resolved] Bad Instructions WORDPRESS guys!

  • Tried to move a testsite to the root directory for a client…followed the codex instructions perfectly….but at one point they say to change the URI’s…which are now URL’s in the settings-general-tab within the dashboard.

    After doing so, you cant get back into the admin area to complete their steps….

    WTF? Could you people please make using wordpress less of a ‘i wanna kill myself task’ and get your selves together?

    I’m sure I’m not the only one with issues trying t move a site from one directory to another….

    Go and read Moving_WordPress and/or Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory properly – especially the bits that say:

    Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.

    right after the instruction to change the urls…

    did that….

    still dead.

    any other ideas?

    thanks for responding, i do appreciate that, but in my OP, I mention already doing that…..

    Moving WordPress Within Your Site, yes? What steps did you manage to complete successfully?

    thanks for your help!

    yes, ‘moving wordpress within your site’.

    I skipped 8 becouse it says for wordpress 2.0. Then moved onto step 9.
    I got through step 9. (put old files into root directory).

    Then I could no longer lo-into the dashboard, either on the new ‘root directory’ or the old testSite directory….

    So I could not complete the permalinks step.

    Once this didn’t work, I went into panic/google mode and added this this to the config.php file:
    define(‘WP_HOME’, ‘http://mojofocusgroups.com’);
    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://mojofocusgroups.com’);

    thanks again…

    Perhaps you made a mistake when adding the new urls in steps 4 & 5? The process outlined on that page has been tested thousands of times.

    heres the error msg im getting when trying to get to the wp-admin page….

    That’s got nothing directly to do with the site move! You appear to have a bad plugin. Rename the wp-content/plugins/tubepress folder.

    to what?

    You have problems in your theme.

    Solving “headers already sent” warnings

    But the site/theme worked perfectly until this attempted transfer to the root….
