Following the advice of GoDaddy Tech Support, I consolidated all 7 of my websites to a single hosting account to save money (which did save me a good bit). I am using WordPress for all of my sites and installed separate instances of WP into sub-folders for each respective website.
site1.com/site3 … etc.
By default, URL site2.com takes me to the correct home page, but the URL’s for all other pages/posts/etc. show the full file path like “site1.com/site2/page2/”.
When I change the setting in General Settings “Site Address (URL)” to http://site2.com the main page URL is correct (site2.com) and still works but then all of the other links are completely broken and give errors (although the URL now displays correctly, site2.com/page2 ). Also, if I go back to the home page the URL now shows the full filepath again rather than site2.com.
GoDaddy Tech Support just said, “Yeah, that should have worked. It shouldn’t do that.” Which is obviously no help.
I have tried updating the .htaccess files (as some people have suggested), but I wasn’t able to get that to work either.
I have been researching this for over a month now and haven’t found a solution. It seems like every time I find a forum with this issue the topic has been closed without resolution.
Is it really unsolvable? I am hoping the right people just haven’t addressed the issue yet.
Can anyone help?
