    I originally had installed my wordpress into a subdirectory called /var/www/html/wp so in order to access you had to go to http://www.example.com/wp

    I changed my wp content folder to just /var/www/html and now I’m having issues with the login. Even though I changed my BASE directory in wp-config.php back to / it is still trying to send me to example.com/wp when I login and its causing me issues. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Try this:

    1. Fire up phpMyAdmin
    2. Go to the appropriate DB for your WPMU install
    3. Navigate to the wp-site table
    4. Click the “Browse” tab. You’ll see the data in that table
    5. The first record should be for your website’s domain with the path to your WPMu install
    6. If that is different than what it should be, make the change there, save, and close.

    Of course, as always, back up your database before making any changes to your data directly or changes that could affect the accessing of your data.

    I’m using MySQL and was able to change the path and it fixed it. Thanks for your help.

    I’m glad you’re back up and running.

    Just in case you don’t know, phpMyAdmin is a MySQL administration tool. Whenever a task requires that you access your MySQL DB directly in the backend, this tool is what most WordPress developers and designers use.
