GoDaddy hosting wp-admin problem

I'm having a big issue with /wp-admin login page on GoDaddy Hosting Account (Windows).

I can't log in if I visit the following url. I get re-directed to the login page again.

  • domain.com/wp-admin

I can log in if I use the following urls.

  • domain.com/wp-admin/ (with the forward slash on the end)
  • domain.com/admin
  • domain.com/login

I pointed the domain I want to use to the installation of my wordpress, which is under a sub-directory of the root.

  • Disabled permalinks (removed web.config which is I guess .htaccess for windows)
  • Disabled plug-ins
  • Verified Site URL in the database (It doesn't contain an extra forward slash)

When I log into wp-admin I am redirected to.

domain.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fdomain.com%2F sub-directory %2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

The url is incorrect and the sub-directory should not be there.

Visiting wp-admin/ with the forward slash directs me to the correct url.

domain.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fdomain.com%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

1) As someone who manage a few hundred WordPress sites - I can tell you the general feeling in the WordPress community is while it CAN run on Windows - you really SHOULD NOT run WordPress on Windows.

 

2) If your domain is pointed to the subfolder and that is working, I would suggest going into the database and making sure both the home and site URLs are the same in the wp_options tables

 

3) Other than that I can't think of anything else off hand - I would tell you that GoDaddy support would not provide additional assistance with this unless you were specifically paying for professional services as this is a config of your content vs an issue with the server itself
