Support » Plugin: Lockdown WP Admin » Doesn't work when WP is in a subdirectory

  • As already mentioned by another user, when the WordPress installation is in a subdirectory (mysite.com/subdir) and configured to be accessed through the root URL (mysite.com) by setting:

    • WordPress Address (URL) = mysite.com/subdir
    • Site Address (URL) = mysite.com

    the plugin fails to work 🙁


    Trying to login via: mysite.com/mykeyword
    shows the login screen fine, but after clicking the Log In button, one gets the Not found error message:
    “You tried going to mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword, and it doesn’t exist.”

    So the only way to login is by disableing the plugin via FTP and then going to:
    mysite.com/subdir/wp-login.php


    Trying to logout via the WP logout link, which shows:
    mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc
    also returns a Not found error message:
    “You tried going to mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc, and it doesn’t exist.”

    So, to logout one has to actually use the following URL:
    mysite.com/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc


    If WP is installed in the root directory or in a subdomain, the plugin works great!
