    check your database and go to wp_options. You might have changed "site_url" value.

    sorry...I don't understand. Where is the database? Where do I find it? On my hard drive?

    Hi...Thanks for the help...I've tried all of this. The problem is...another person set up the site for me and I don't know who his web host provider is. I've downloaded WP to my computer but can't open the files as it's not associated with my domaine name. I can't get in contact with the person that set it up so...I guess I've lost my entire site. I was hoping that someone on WP end would be able to access my dashboard or at least redirect the URL for me. Isn't there someone in WP that can fix it on their end?? Like I said...I spent all day on this yesterday to no avail...Any help would be forever appreciated.
    My URL WAS 'www.brian-greco-salon' and I tried to change it to 'www.brian-greco-stylist'. pull up the website and see what happened. Now the site is in the middle of construction and I can't fix it:(

    Change the urls back. See Changing_The_Site_URL for details of how to do this.
