Today's article is a bit’ technical, I had to delve into some trends that I was too light for some trouble when I installed WordPress combined (the engine of this blog) su TheJoe.it.
Here below the steps Blog with WordPress support to move an existing WordPress installation from within a folder, the root domain. As in my case it was installed in WordPress “
https://thejoe.it/wordpress/“, the file
index.php in the root directory instead was a simple redirect 301 alla directory “
/wordpress“. It was uncomfortable to have the blog in another place than the root of the site, but it was even more uncomfortable showing the URL including “
The steps are as follows:
- or al general control panel (“settings” – “General“),
- nel box “Website (URL)“: the address changes from “
http://example.com/wp” a “
- click on “Save the changes” (do not worry about error messages, and do not try to open the blog at this point, in all probability will be shown the message “file not found“),
- copy (DO NOT MOVE) i file
.htaccessfrom within the directory “
/wp” root. The file
.htaccessis invisible, it is possible that you will need to configure your FTP client so as to list them,
- edit the file
index.phpthis time in your root directory as follows:
- open the file
index.phppresent in the root with a text editor,
- change the following line:
with this following expression:
- save the file.
- open the file
- Log on the site (if you're not already logged in). The URL should still be “http://example.com/wp/wp-admin/",
It is important to follow these instructions to the letter, a small variation brings down the house of cards.
