    Hey guys,

    This is possibly a simple fix but im just not finding it too easy. The issue is my site is hosted by someone else, and they use parallels plesk, so hes coded wordpress in to work through mydomain.com.au/wordpress. The guy im dealing with says he doesnt know enough about wordpress and that I need to fix this through my end, however im not so sure, it seems to be a url issue through hosting not wordpress. So for me to work on it I go mydomain.com.au/wordpress/wp-admin etc. The finished site only shows when you use mydomain.com.au/wordpress. If I type in mydomain.com.au it just has a blank page no error just blank.

    So, my question is, how can I fix this to show the content thats in mydomain.com.au/wordpress to show up at mydomain.com.au

    Probably an easy one but I cant find anything on it. Any help would be awesome, thanks

    Ok thanks, which of the first two options apply to me? Changing url or not changing? Thanks

    When Your Domain Name or URLs Change,

    because, you are in category "from http://example.com/site to http://example.com"

    Open your wp-config.php and insert at the bottom:

    define('WP_HOME', 'http://www.example.com'); // no trailing slash
    define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://www.example.com'); // no trailing slash

    with your site url updated. This will override everything.
