 Hi @georgiel and welcome to Trac.

 Can you please provide some more details about how your install is
 configured, as the configuration as presented as far as I can tell works
 fine, there were also no changes between 4.7 and 4.8 related to this as
 far as I'm aware.

 Things that will be of use to us include things like how you've specified
 the url changes, through the settings/options? If so, what do they
 currently read as?
 What did you experience after the upgrade - was the .htaccess file the
 same before and after?  - what is the content of it too, is it standard,
 or custom?
 Did you perform any debugging steps in an attempt to fix or diagnose the
 site before the restore?

 It's also a little confusing here, as you're referring to `redirects`
 which shouldn't be used in this scenario at all - there should be nothing
 to redirect, WordPress is simply told that the files exist in a different

 I use the WordPress-in-a-subdirectory format on https://dd32.id.au/
 without issue (I'll note that I'm also using a custom `WP_CONTENT_DIR` &
 WordPress 4.9 which is mostly the same as 4.8 currently), the only times
 I've ever seen something like what you're referring to is when WordPress
 is configured "Backwards" (Home url set to what should be the site url,
 and vice versa) - but that shouldn't have broken after an upgrade, it
 should've always been broken.
