    With above note you can just make the Site Address and WordPress Address a sub folder.

    You might want to read up in WordPress networks tho, makes updating n managing multiple sites easier.

    Hallo David,

    thanks for the answer. This does not fully cover my use-case.

    I have the following general setings:
    WordPress address (URL):
    Site address (URL):

    Page urls are now correctly generated for the backend and frontend.
    Asset urls are still wrong. so the static style url is still:
    /wp-content/themes/onesocial/css/admin.css?ver=1.1.4 instead of

    The link to all media assets is also missing the folder “wordpress1”.

    How can I solve this?

    Thanks in advance,

    linking to a resource stylesheet by WordPress standards, is done with a core function, like get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory') which uses the WordPress address value to build a relative URL. This is all setup this way so tasks (like you’re after) are easily accomplishable. I can’t view the source code of your theme (as it’s premium) to check the code, but I assume it’s authored correctly, so your stylesheets and resources should be loading the new path. Without knowing more, I assume it’s a caché, your browser might of not noticed the change. Try on new browser or in private mode.

    As for inline things, like LINKS and IMAGES within your pages/posts text, they’re just static values stored in the database. So you’ll need to change those urls – there’s a few plugins that can do that for you if you don’t want to do find+replace on the database:

    Also double check your htaccess file has updated / is correct, and be sure you only have one if your Site URL and Home Address are different. You can review htaccess file and where it should be in Settings > Permalink. Saving a change in that settings page also flushes your rewrite cache, which is handy when troubleshooting.

    This article explains how to point to a level up from where WordPress is installed.
