Wordpress Subdomain

What do you use for FTP access?

We can access the ftp via filezilla…

Great… One sec, just loading up FileZilla to talk you through it

If you open up FIleZilla and connect to your server, on the right hand side, you should see the files on your web server

There should be a directory within this called ‘blog’ where the wordpress installation is

We do indeed. my colleague is on the ftp on her machine now

Great, in the ‘blog’ directory, do you see a file called wp-config.php

There is a folder called
!webconfig

as well as folder
wp-admin
wp-content
wp-includes

Those folders are right, within the main folder, further down - below wp-includes, there should be a list of files also in the folder…

we have found that file…

Great! On the left hand side, select a suitable location to temporarily save it to on your colleague’s computer - e.g. the desktop.

that is now saved on our drive

great, can you open it with a text editor such as notepad

yes, we have done that

Near the bottom there should be a line:

/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

yes we have that…

ABOVE that line, add

define(‘WP_HOME’,‘http://steel-city.co.uk/blog’);
define(‘WP_SITEURL’,‘http://steel-city.co.uk/blog’);

then save, then drag and drop back into the main blog folder?

You got it!

Blog and admin now both showing this.
