Description (last modified by peterwilsoncc)

In one of the latest versions of WordPress, we added this code to the file wp-config.php:

if ( ! defined( 'WP_CLI' ) ) {
        define( 'WP_SITEURL', $_SERVER['REQUEST_SCHEME'] . '://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] );
        define( 'WP_HOME', $_SERVER['REQUEST_SCHEME'] . '://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] );

However, when declaring some constants, the site URL continues to be taken from the option in the database:

define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-content' );

The problem occurs when the site administrator moves the site to another domain or switches to HTTPS, but does not change the URL in the database. At the same time, WordPress continues to work, even with the wrong address in the option in the database, but the old site address turns out to be in the constant

Hi @webtemyk and welcome to trac!

Prior to running the code to define WP_CONTENT_URL WordPress adds a filter to override the siteurl and homeurl option if the constants are set, the filters are added in the wp-includes/default-filters.php file, and the for the filters check if the constants are defined.

However, if you have set your site up in multisite mode these filters do not run. Is your site running as a multisite install?
