When upgrading a WordPress site installed in a directory I get a 404 error page because WP goes to:


instead of going to:


So it seems WP uses Site address (URL) instead of WordPress address (URL) as set on the General panel.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The form submits to update-core.php in the current working directory, which for you should be my-wp-install-folder/wp-admin/.

See https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/3.8/src/wp-admin/update-core.php#L40

I also did a test of a sub-folder install https://cloudup.com/cmWE6Ctfboi for 3.8 and 3.8.2 https://cloudup.com/cANFl09TTAG and got an upgrade https://cloudup.com/cDNHpSAm2s9

I don't think this is a bug in core. What may have caused this for you, not sure. But, thanks for helping out!
