WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have myDomain.com on GoDaddy and I have it linked up to use a wordpress application on my webfaction account. I have the domain entered in the domains page for myDomain.com but when you go to myDomain.com the url in the address bar gets redirected to show myApp.user.webfactional.com instead of just staying myDomain.com.

What am I doing wrong?

When you added your WordPress app to your site in our control panel, the WP site URL (in WP options) was changed to your webfactional.com subdomain.

You can fix it by logging into your database in phpMyAdmin and editing the siteurl and home options in your wp_options table.

That, and other solutions, are described in more detail here: Changing the Site URL « WordPress Codex

Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot for the help.

I tried that but the URL is still displaying incorrectly and now I am unable to log into the administration part of wordpress so I put it back.

Any other ideas?

Thanks again
