Today, I promoted my WordPress site to be at the root of the jandejongh.eu site. In other words, instead of using https://jandejongh.eu/wordpress to reach the WordPress site, it is now simply https://jandejongh.eu. A major improvement, since this is the way I want to be reached.
I’m using a Fedora-33 with stock-installed Apache
wordpress (from Fedora repos). Here’s what worked for me:
- Comment out all contents of
/etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf. This was still on my list; the
welcome.conffile presents the default page hinting at further steps to populate an Apache deployment still without (other) content.
- Enter the site’s top-level address (https://jandejongh.eu) in both fields in the WordPress Settings form:
Alias /wordpress /usr/share/wordpresswith
Alias / /usr/share/wordpress/in the top line (or thereabout) of
/etc/httpd/conf.d/wordpress.conf. The final
/appeared crucial in the alias statement.
