http:/ as the root directory? V.1.5 (9 posts)

    What's the deal with the post-install of WordPress (nightly build 1/18) causing http:/ to be my root dir and nothing else?

    How can I change this in the SQL DB?

    Temporary fix, read this first:

    After reading that, reset your site_url via phpmyadmin by following this tutorial:

    Simply commenting the two lines in wp-login.php and then reloading wp-login.php should reset the siteurl in the DB, without going through so many steps in phpMyAdmin.

    Commenting which two lines?

    I'm dealing with this as well - seems to randomly revert back to http:

    Thanks, macmanx.

    I've installed the 01/21 nightly since another thread suggested it fixed this problem, so hopefully the edit will be unneeded. However, I'm now stuck with another problem, logging in! I've posted about it in the 01/21 fix thread, hopefully someone there will have a solution.

    macmanx - followed all the suggestions on the page, including those on sexygirlgeek.com (linked from the codex).

    Still no cigar.
