I set up a fresh WordPress installation in a folder called 'wp' under root. I followed the directions for Giving WordPress Its Own Directory and pointed the URL to root successfully. I then proceeded to import some posts which had attachments to them. My uploads folder is currently set to /wp/wp-content/uploads but throughout the posts, the attachment URLs point to /wp-content/uploads.
I tried creating a symlink through the shell but that didn't work. Could someone please help me out?
