[resolved] Changed Domain name & can't login to my admin area of my blog. (2 posts)

    **Warning - I am a total newbie at all this and have no technical skill or knowhow..
    My blog is hosted by hostgator and two days ago I changed my domain name (both were with hostgator). Unfortunately I didn't do my homework very well and now I can't get into the admin area of my blog. I did a backup via hostgator before I changed my DNS and have this saved on my computer, but didn't do anything on my blog before I had the name change.

    When I call the blog up (http://in-my-backyard.net) I get an ugly version of my front page, but all the posts are still pointing to my old name (steffykat.com, so nothing opens).

    I have searched the internet and tried to follow some the instructions I have found but to no avail.
    I have found that on phpmyadmin my siteurl and home url are the new one?

    How do I get to my admin area of my blog.

    Hi Have worked it out.. when my host changed my url's they put /blog/ at the end of url.

    Removed this and reset my user and voila...

    cheers
