Support » Installing WordPress » Installed WP in subfolder before adding on as a domain…

  • HI,
    I am hoping someone can let me know my options to get out of this little mess.

    I have a main domain under which I typically install add-on domains. In this instance, however, I created the folder and installed wordpress and THEN added on the domain. Now my blog will not work properly. If I try to go directly to i get a 500 error.

    I am only using wp in this case so far for pages and not posts, so the content that I have in there could be easily moved by hand.

    What are my options at this point?

    You’ll have to access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel) and manually change the siteurl and home values.
