SOLVED WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) are exposed for editing in GUI


  • I was just playing around with the latest WordPress Developer package, and noticed something that I don't believe was the case previously or at least I didn't notice it until recently and definitely isn't allowed in the Managed one... if you go to Settings > General, you'll find the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) fields openly editable.

    In Managed deployment, those are greyed out. I suspected that was needed so that people didn't accidentally edit that and make WordPress unreachable, since it should be set by the Location set in the Cloudron GUI instead. Have I misunderstood? Is this a defect in the new package, or is this as-expected?

    Just raising it in case it's an issue, as I imagine it could be.

    Good observation. I think it makes sense to keep them readonly like before since one is supposed to edit them only from Cloudron dashboard anyway. WP does this if we set HOME_URL in the wp-config.php. I have fixed it for coming release (for both dev and managed).


  • Yeah, making them read only makes the most sense. It's not like URLs change that often but you certainly wouldn't want to change it in WP or Cloudron would freak. 😂
