Changed Domain & Now Site is Gone. 404 Errors, wp-admin login page missing (6 posts)

    I changed my domain from http://www.naturallystellar.com/wordpress to http://www.naturallystellar.com from within the wp-admin "General Settings" page. Changed both my Blog URL and WordPress URL. After hitting Save, I'm receiving 404 error codes whenever I go to my domain. Also I can't access the wp-admin login screen anymore after this change. When I go to http://www.naturallystellar.com/wordpress/wp-admin or http://www.naturallystellar.com/wp-admin , nothing is there.

    The meat of my site is still there: http://naturallystellar.com/wordpress/ but there's no bones.

    I use Cpanel but not sure where to go or what to do within file manager to get my site & admin login page back up.

    Any thoughts on how to revive my site without having to doing a complete re-install?

    You can change those settings back - see:

    Thanks. I read through the options at the link above. Now when you say I can change my settings back, So am I supposed to put in my old domain, or the new one?

    I really want everything to point to http://www.naturallystellar.com which is why I changed it in the first place.

    So by following one of these options, will my site be back up and I have the ability to get into the Admin login page again?

    You need to change them back to what they were and then see:

    Thanks for your help :) but I'm totally lost. I'm not a developer or coder. I feel like I'm looking at braille.

    Seems like a simple domain change should have an easier correct from within one of my site files or something.

    Thanks again for your time.

    Unfortunately, there isn't an "easier" correct - so you will need to use one of the methods in the first articles to put those back to what they were so that you can access your site. I think the functions file method works well -

    Do you have FTP access to your site set up? That's the first step in getting this sorted out.
