Can't access dashboard, new to wordpress (4 posts)

    I am new to wordpress, and new to setting up websites. Some of the posts I had read on the subject I did not fully understand.

    Here is my problem:
    I created my site via MAMP on my Mac, and everything was fine. I was able to access what I needed after login. Once the site was done I accedentally pressed save after changing the URL to yourdisconline.com other than the localhost..etc I immediately tried to undo the change, but it locked me out of the dashboard.

    When I went to try to go back to localhost../wp-admin to login, it took me to a blank page under yourdisconline.com (right now it is linked to its partner site of trainitinten.com -please disregard that).

    I have no idea how to get into the dashboard to change it back to the localhost for right now until the domain is changed from trainitinten. I need to be able to access the dashboard.

    That url is through hostmonster, and I cannot do anything from this point until I can gain access again. Please, any help is appreciated as I am new to this. Thank you!

    As a side note, this hostmonster page comes up when I try to login as normal
    "404 Error File Not Found
    The page you are looking for might have been removed,
    had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

    Any help is much appreciated, I need to get the site up and running soon, and I am worried I will need to start completely over from scratch.

    I checked phpmyadmin on MAMP start page, and I have no tables under my WordPress file, so I cannot get into options_wp to edit anything in there to work backwards from the changing your URL post.

    I would suggest setting up the wp-url in the wp-config.php. This forum post should help you:

    The other option would be to upload it to your hostmonster account, since the url is already setup for that domain.
