Mapping WP to a domain name for the second time on 123-reg

    I’m not sure if this is really a question for WordPress and it’s users, as it is more of a hosting problem, but since 123-reg haven’t responded to my e-mails I thought I would ask for help here.

    I am just starting out with WordPress and as explained, I am using 123-reg as my hosting.

    With my hosting, my main domain name is, within this I set up a folder (called ‘wordpress’) to map to my WP blog. I went ahead and mapped the domain, then proceeded to install the WP app that is offered on 123 reg, the installation went smoothly however all of the links/images/css files etc were pointing to the wrong locations (due to the mapping) – I then decided to uninstall the WP app and start again.

    So this time I created a folder ‘blog63’ , and installed the WP app within it, this went fine and worked accordingly with all files now pointing to the correct paths. However, after re-mapping my other domain to the blog63 folder and attempting to load the website, it is still looking for the old ‘wordpress’ folder and therefore gives me a 404 Not Found Error.

    Really hope someone can point me in the right direction of how to solve this issue.

    If you got this far, thanks for reading!
