Support » Fixing WordPress » URL alteration mishap

  • I got a new website name with my webhost deal, and just worked out how to redirect where the url web address points to in that particular control panel.

    I had wordpress in its usual folder, and had my url pointed to the root directory, with nothing there as of yet. I decided to let the url point to the wordpress directory, but alas, it messed up my WordPress website, as yet not public so no woes in that respect.

    How big a mistake is this?

    Update, my WordPress is ok again now as I changed the url back to what it was. I can reach the WordPress site by just adding the /wordpress onto the address – but when I altered the adress to point to WordPress, I got the front page, with no css, plus no way to get into admin.

    Ah well, live and learn eh?

    I guess there is some way to alter my adress, but I might just make a homepage the old fashioned way.

  • Hi LL,
    I’m a bit slow sometimes.
    Do you mean you had WP in with the url pointing to
    Then changed it to point to the WP folder?

    Or just the domain name redirected to an existing site?

    BTW, how’s the 3 column theme coming?

    Samboll, I changed the domain name to point to the wordpress folder, but the site seemed to lose the Css and I could not go to admin.

    Maybe I should have waited longer for the changes, but I just presumed that because I saw the WordPress site, albiet messed up, that the domain name changes were all sorted.

    Its ok now though as I changed the domain back to what it was. I need a domain for the root of my directory anyway, and have a few more to put up.

    The three column theme is being used by me for a website and all seems to be ok, I’ll post the link to it in the usual thread because its changed a bit more, and is not the one I’ve had linked to for the past few days.

    I can’t remember any successful attempt to use a redirected/pointed domain to a WP folder somewhere else.
