Support » Installing WordPress » Creating new WP install w/ add-on domain URL that's presently directed elsewhere

    So I have a WP blog at a different web host. I want to move it to my new webhost before cancelling the old one, but I want to use this opportunity to rebuild the blog altogether (it’s not really a blog, it’s just 5 static pages, so no database transfer issues here).

    So I created/installed a new WP install in my new host, where it will be placed in a directory called:

    /public_html/mysmallblog.com

    This is to be an add-on domain, buried under my current non-wp site called http://www.mywebsite.com.

    Once I have this new WP install built, I’ll redirect my domain name http://www.mysmallblog.com to this directory and it will be done, then I’ll delete my old host account.

    However, my trouble is this: when I go to my new WP website at http://www.mywebsite.com/mysmallblog.com/wp-admin to login, it redirects me to:

    http://mysmallblog.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mywebsite.com%2Fmysmallblog.com%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

    That is, it redirects me to the live site for logging in. Once I get things fully moved over that will be fine, but for now it is directing me to the live site and thus a different WP install.

    How do I temporarily disable these redirects so that it stays on my hidden underconstruction site buried at http://www.mywebsite.com/mysmallblog.com/wp-admin

    ?

    Hopefully that makes sense… it seems more convoluted written out here than it really is…

    Thanks,
    Derek
