I have a brand new site, with the wordpress folder at mysite.com/wordpress. I changed the Site URL field to mysite.com, while leaving the wordpress field at mysite.com/wordpress. I've done this hundreds of times, but for whatever reason, it's not working in the latest version of wordpress. The field is changed, but the url mysite.com keeps bringing up the directory, and mysite.com/wordpress is displaying the site.
I have fresh installed this website / db 2 times now, with no luck. The website directory is 100% empty aside from an empty cgi bin folder, and the wordpress folder. It is completely barebones, and I've done / am doing this on many sites. This is clearly a bug in the latest wordpress, and I'd love to have it fixed / know how I can fix this issue.
