So I've set up and configured WordPress on an Ubuntu home server. I have a domain name and everything seems to be working fine with one exception. Though the domain name shows in the browser of the WordPress home page (e.g. whenever I click on one of the links within the same page (WordPress login for instance) the IP of my server shows in the browser (e.g. I've followed various tutorials etc. but haven't yet solved the problem.

Does anyone know how I might solve this?

You likely used the IP address originally when you set up the site. See the second paragraph of the "If you forget to change the locations" section of the following page:… for how to switch it to the domain name instead. – Moshe Katz Jan 16 '13 at 2:27

Thanks so much. I'll give this a try and verify later. Also, thanks for pointing out that I'd previously neglected to accept answers. Was not my intention to overlook. – user98496 Jan 16 '13 at 2:39

  1. Login your wordpress admin page
  2. Go to Setting -> General
  3. Check WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL), they should be as follow

    WordPress Address (URL) =
    Site Address (URL) =
