Support » Fixing WordPress » proxy not working for admin edit.php links

  • I thought that I had resolved this issue – but I had not so I am reposting
    Thank you in advance – here is an example of my issue:
    I have a subdomain I set up a proxy server so that the user will see the site as
    in wp-config I set up

    /** Site URL */
    define( ‘WP_HOME’, ‘’ );
    define( ‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘’ );

    $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’] = str_replace(“/wp-admin/”, “/media/wp-admin/”, $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’]);
    The only link that doesn’t work properly is the link in wp-admin on the pages and posts It is the link to next pages and next posts on the bottom (or top) of those pages and it Does not work. Those links start at:… INSTEAD OF It is not affected by site url setting changes which we set up. To try to fix this issue
    I added to the .htaccess
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^media/wp\-admin/edit\.php$\-admin/edit.php? [L,R=301]

    And now this link refreshes to
    and I cannot get to see the other 56 pages of posts that I have.
    What do you recommend?
    thank you

    Try the following for your rewrite rule:

    RewriteRule ^media/wp\-admin/edit\.php$ [QSA,L,R=301]

    Note that other $_SERVER keys may need editing, such as HTTP_HOST, SCRIPT_FILENAME, and DOCUMENT_ROOT.

    I tried your fix and it works on the one hand – I can now click from admin pages to see the next page However, I cannot it creates an erro and I cannot save new pages – I get a json error – Updating failed: the response is not a valid JSON response.

    Do you have any suggestions? thanks in advance
    I tested it on staging – here is the full htaccess code

    #when these two lines are in I can get to next page. but breaks saving pages. When I take it out the pages work again.
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^staging/wp\-admin/edit\.php$ [QSA,L,R=301]

    Looking at the code in the wp_guess_url() function, it appears that you should also edit $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'], and $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']. Try that and see if it helps.

    Thank you for your help. I am not exactly sure how to set this up. Please advise. the other thought was to use a javacript as follows `jQuery(‘a[href*=””]’).each(function()
    var href = jQuery(this).attr(‘href’);
    var new_href = href.replace(‘’, ‘’);
    jQuery(this).attr(‘href’, new_href);
