  • Hi Everyone,

    Hoping you can help me out here.

    I have a wordpress site up and running using IIS. No drama’s.

    However, I am in the process of registering a new domain as DynDns have cancelled my free one.

    The problem I have now is that whatever I try, I cannot access my site locally.

    Can someone please advise exactly what I need to do in order to edit my site locally (whilst my registration comes through).

    At the moment, I have the WP_SITEURL set to ‘localhost/blog’.

    Within IIS, my Sitename is ‘WordPress’, with the ‘/Blog’ application coming immediately underneath this.

    The error I see when I look up localhost/Blog via a web browser is this –

    HTTP Error 404.0 – Not Found
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
    Detailed Error Information
    Module IIS Web Core
    Notification MapRequestHandler
    Handler PHP53_via_FastCGI
    Error Code 0x80070002

    Requested URL http://localhost:80/Blog/localhost/blog/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%2FBlog%2F&reauth=1
    Physical Path D:\Blog-Stuff\Blog\localhost\blog\wp-login.php
    Logon Method Anonymous
    Logon User Anonymous

    What I can’t work out, is how the physical path is being constructed, because obviously it is wrong –

    It should be –


    but as you can see from the above error, it ends up as –


    Help appreciated !
