Directory references - referrers gone in 2.9

Description

I have WP running off a different directory and all the relative URLs are now broken:

On the front end:

  • agendacide.com - a page controlled from within WP
  • agendacide.com/minutes - runs WordPress and its own index page

All resulting references after updating from 2.9 core results in:
http://www.agendacide.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fminutes%2Fwp-admin%2F

Which returns a 404.

Impossible to log in or upgrade, all CSS broken.

This referrer issue seems to be an issue only when initially trying to find the blog directory folder, initially.

Upon login, and adjustment, all is fixed, but initial login process is difficult still. this may be the only associated issue. Check the initial login process and their referrers... that seems to be the only problem.

Instead of having wp in the /minutes/ directory, you should do this:

  1. Create a 'Home' page and a 'Minutes' page
  2. Go to Settings -> Reading:
  3. Set "Front page displays:" [A static page]
