[resolved] WordPress on temporary url using IP address (3 posts)

    I have a site in asp and wanted to convert it to wordpress.
    I have setup a wordpress site using a temporary url such as http://IP-ADDRESS/website url on a different server.

    Once the temporary site was ready I pointed the domain to the new IP address. Now when searching for the site it redirects to my new wordpress site hompage but when I click on navigation tabs it redirects to the temporay IP address. I also don't think mod-rewrite is setup on the server.

    I'm not sure what the problems is and more importantly I'm not sure how to resolve it. :-(

    Any words of wisdom woudl be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Managed to resolve this issue. I went into the database and changed the site_url and that did the trick. Had to also modify the home row to ensure the'Home' link woudl point to the correct place.

    Thanks hornitosmonster for your reply!
