I'm successfully able to login but the links point to 404s until I correct them manually. Here's the step by step scenario:
- Visited wp-admin/wp-login.php and login successfully say the dashboard link is localhost
- When hovered over other links on the sidebar they don't have 'wp-admin' in them. For eg., it says localhost/edit.php instead of locahost/wp-admin/edit.php. When I correct it manually in the URL bar, it works but that's not how it's supposed to be.
- After manually correcting and redirecting to the proper page, all he links now have 'wp-admin' in them.
I have tried downloading & replacing all the WP core files. I have also added a backslash to 'siteurl' & 'home' in wp-options which now point to http://localhost/ without any success.
