I moved this WordPress installation from a different folder on the webserver.
Wordpress makes it relatively easy to do this by providing a wp-config.php file that you can define paths in.
I went about changing and redefining the following four:
define(’WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://www.freddysmind.com/wordpress’); define(’WP_HOME’, ‘http://www.freddysmind.com/wordpress’); define( ‘WP_CONTENT_URL’, ‘http://www.freddysmind.com/wordpress/wp-content’); define( ‘WP_CONTENT_DIR’, $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . ‘/wordpress/wp-content’ );
Piece of cake, I thought I was set. But apparently it doesn’t change the wordpress UPLOAD directory. I’m sure it’s the fact that I just missed the post that said I needed to include that as well. All of my uploads were disappearing.
You can change the uploads directory without having to define it in the wp-config.php file.
Simply go under the Dashboard and go to Settings -> Miscellaneous and you can redefine it there.
