I put my content on my website theme using WordPress through my web provider, GoDaddy.com, and I was working on connecting my domain, http://www.sipcreative.com, to my wordpress folder (sipcreative.com/wordpress) using the WordPress instructions. The instructions had me copy, not move, an index.php, web.config, and wp-config.php file from the ‘WordPress’ folder to my domain’s root folder called ‘html’. (I did not have a .htaccess file to move according to GoDaddy.) Then it had me change a line in my index.php file to… require(‘./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’); so that it included the ‘/wordpress’ in it. This is what my file looks like now:
* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn’t do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
* @package WordPress
* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
* @var bool
/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
So I did all that. Now my website works by going directly to my url (www.sipcreative.com) However, when I tried to go back to my WordPress admin, it doesn’t. I get this error, ”
500 – Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.” when I try to go to my WordPress admin login page http://sipcreative.com/wordpress/wp-admin/.
Do you know what I did wrong? I’m assuming that the two are related since I have just been logged in not long before. GoDaddy’s customer rep only said that I probably had to modify additional lines somewhere, but couldn’t tell me where or how…since he didn’t have access to my files or something. I tried looking through the WordPress documents, but I’m not sure what I’m reading. Please help.
Once other thing to mention is that I did also upgraded/updated WordPress, via the dashboard, to the latest version (don’t know what number) during that login session, but I don’t know if it’s related.
Thanks in advance.
UPDATE: When surfing through my website,I notice some picture links were broken… To see if it was really loading my website or just getting it from my browsing history, I cleared the history. Now my website doesn’t work either. Text shows, but everything else is broken.
