Change "Home" button from http://localhost/wordpress/ to web server (3 posts)

    Hi Vantage.

    I went from a XAMPP localhost installation:
    http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Wordpress-on-XAMPP

    to a online web service.
    I have modified the SQL database as written here:
    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-move-wordpress-from-local-server-to-live-site/

    Which shows settings correct in Dashboard->Settings->WordPress Address (URL) / Site Address (URL).

    But I have a problem how to modify the link to "Home" at the website.
    http://www.roskilde-theranch.dk

    The button points to http://localhost/wordpress/, which is from the old installation.

    How do I modify this?

    You have to modify the HTACCESS file. The part of the file that needs to be changed is going to depend on your hosting company. Send an e-mail or chat with their live support and they should be able to walk to through it..

    You can also google "edit htaccess file (your web hosting company)"
