Thanks dougal.  But in our company, all intranet urls are like https://blogs,
https://wiki .  Infact, we have a huge corporate blog implementation of
wordpress that hosts around 15,000 blogs inside our company..  the url is
like https://ch1blogs/blogs .

I am currently upgrading the code base to the latest version...  i deployed
a customized version of wordpress around two years back when wordpress was
in its nightly build and now i am redoing all customizations in to plugins.
We need to maintain the same url after upgradation..

It would be helpful, if i know in which part of the code this issues
