Siteurl and home rows are getting altered in the DB (7 posts)

    I have a strange and--disturbingly--reoccurring issue where my permalinks and administrative login will break due to the siteurl and home fields in the wp_options table being altered.

    I'm running a multisite 3.0 install and Ron and Andrea's multisite plugin, so I have multiple subdirectory networks on different subdomains.

    The problem always is the same: if I'm on a subdomain like sub.domain.com, all permalinks and the admin login will suddenly point to domain.com/sub, obviously breaking in the process.

    Manually changing the two fields in the db from domain.com/sub back to sub.domain.com resolves the issue, but it happens with seemingly no reason or warning, and has happend at least 3 times on about a dozen sites.

    Also, twice it has changed to something totally crazy like http://or/g/sub which breaks the site entirely.

    Does anyone have any clue what could be going on here?

  2. No clue at all.

    Can you post over at musupport.net instead? Just in case it's anything to do with our plugin, I can keep it over there and not clutter up the forums here. ;)

    Erf... Andrea I was hoping if anyone would know it would be you!

    I've cross-posted it here.

    Please someone give me some insight, this is very troubling! It happened again just this morning on a site that was working fine yesterday and hasn't been messed with since!

    I've been able to reproduce the issue & will see about writing a patch & submitting a ticket to trac.
