I am now in need of some help.
I have created a WP install on my home server (ClearOS 5.2) running at home. Now it comes to putting this live on the web, with the correct domain name and I’ve got some issues with not getting any further than the defined home page.
WP website was running perfectly across my Lan using BS1.home as the site address, and BS1.home/wp-admin to access the dashboard.
wp-settings were wordpress address= http://bs1.home and site address= https://bs1.home .
To set this live I have a port fwd rule set in my router to direct to BS1.home, this was working fine with my previous static website (not WP).
From the WP dashboard wp-settings, I then set site URL to http://jaynebratton.com and home to be http://jaynebratton.com
This resulted in no access even to dashboard using the lan address.
I had to manually edit the sql database to reset these and get back in to the dashboard
dashboard accessible using bs1.home/wp-admin
website (frontpage only) is accessible but page doesn’t show up correctly (looks like a template issue)
dashboard not accessible from jaynebratton.com/wp-admin
menus in website show up as jayenbratton.com/?page_id=## but when clicked keep user on the frontpage
url’s created from the page edit in dashboard show up as BS1.home/?page_id=##
The help I need is; What do I need to set to get the site rendering correctly and links all working? I can’t access any of the site other than a poor rendition of the frontpage from machines external to the LAN.
Server : ClearOS 5.2 (called bs1.home on my own LAN)
Server Access : I have full access (root) to the server on the LAN if needed (i built it).
File permissions : I believe these are correct (most are 755 folders and 644 files).
File location : WP and all files are found in /var/www/html/
Template : PrimePress
.htaccess file doesn’t exist in /var/ww/html (I’ve checked for hidden files).
frontpage : home page of website
Thanks for any pointers (or precise answers 😉 )
