I have a static html website at http://www.tonymillerknives.com – this is an addon domain mapped to public-html/knifeweb. I also have WP installed in public-html/blog which is blog.tonymillerknives.com. I have rebuilt my old pages in WP and now want to use the WP site as http://www.tonymillerknives.com.
In the general tab I changed site address to http://www.tonymillerknives.com, copied the index.php file and .htaccess file to public-html/knifeweb and changed
require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wp-blog-header.php' );
require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/blog/wp-blog-header.php' );
That didn’t work. It caused a 500 error. Then it occurred to me that since the WP install is not in a subdirectory of /knifeweb but in another directory at the same level that I should change it to
require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '../blog/wp-blog-header.php' );
But that didn’t work either – same 500 error.
What am I doing wrong? How do I make this work?
Thanks for any help you can give.
