I am at a company right now, we just put a new, blank copy of WordPress into Subversion. Each programmer and each front end person is checking it out from Subversion and working on it. We've got 5 people working on it. Unfortunately, the field in the database that has the URL for the front page is causing problems. It keeps redirecting to a fixed URL, rather than each person's own home url (their local url in the own sandbox). Can we wildcard this URL somehow?
How is the dev's database setup? Each dev should be using their own config file that should not be checked in. Rename the original config adding a .orig and in your prod build process rename this file to without the .orig
If you do the below answers, also be sure to include $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] as well as the HOST
Just filter the home option by current site URL.
into functions.php of the theme please.
Add this to your config.php file.
$url = 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . str_replace('index.php', '', $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']);
