    Hi
    I got my blog up and running - http://www.sharetradesecrets.com. I was playing around and under options, general, I changed my WordPress address URL and blog URL to http://www.sharetradesecrets.com/blog and now I cannot access wp-admin. Please can you help me log back in so that I can change my WordPress address URL and blog URL back to http://www.sharetradesecrets.com

    Many thanks
    Karen

    Well, website options are not playground...

    Don't touch them ever if you don't know what are you doing!

    saves you from having to access the database.

    Thank you so much Moshu and Whooami. I applied Moshu info and its sorted it out perfectly.
    What I was trying to do was to have my blog under http://www.sharetradesecrets.com/blog instead of http://www.sharetradesecrets.com. Is there an easy way to do this?
    Thanks again
    Karen

    whoo, I just watched that "movie" about your script (BTW, it's a very clever, nice work!) - but I don't really see how could it help with moving a WP install.

    read my reply in the post I announced it in.. Im actually using it this way right now, since my bigbox install got found by google. I rename the directory, update the settings and im good to go. :)

    For the OP in this thread.. all thats necessary is moving the files into the blog/ directory and opening the script from there. I should actually make a video on that too :)

    The script doesnt care where your old install is.. whether those settigs are wrong or not. It just looks to make sure its inside a directory with wp-header.php
