Problem with domain forwarding and site / blog url (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I've been working on getting my wordpress installation right for 3 days straight now.
    Installation manuals, support topics, user guides, it's just not working.

    My problem:

    I've got the domain "www.mijnmeuk.nl" forwarded to my ip-adres (
    My basic wordpress installation (2.05) is running properly on apache2 on my home server in htdocs (root). No wordpress directory.
    After the install it is reachable at the ip-adres and fully functional (adding themes, widgets etc).

    When I go to options and change the site url and blog url to http://www.mijnmeuk.nl, the blog stops functioning. I only get the basic frontpage without a applied stylesheet and loging in is not possible. It loads the header, sidebar and footer.
    Changing the site url back in the mysql tables doesn't reverse the problem as well.

    I got the installation working in this set up with "frame" domain forwarding, but I don't want it to run in a frame. So the forwarding is set to "location".
    I tried restarting the Apache and Mysql services, no effect.

    I've read support topics concerning site-url and forwarding, but no usable information.
    I've set up the blog at the above url and it is running.

    Please help!

    yeah, I was trying something out. Sorry about that. It's set up now at http://www.mijnmeuk.nl. That redirects to and is showing the blog correctly.
    But I want it to display the url http://www.mijnmeuk.nl. Things go wrong when I change site and blog url in options at the admin console.
