Dear WP Colleagues:
I have to switch from a shared IP address to a Dedicated IP address, and to my surprize this destabilizes the installed wordpress (with O-Box PRESS template).
It still finds the site, but it does not find the .css anymore, so the contents is rendered unformatted. In the source code, all links to CSS etc are absolute (http:// etc), not relative ( ../blafolder/).
Any idea why this happens?
I have switched the server back to a shared IP address and instantly everything is back to normal 100% fine. Switch it back to Dedicated IP and all falls apart. The Name Server requirements for both shared and dedicated IP are identical, so at my Registrar nothing changes. Same name server settings for both.
Looking forward to your wisdom.
With warm regards!
