[resolved] Changed the domain name and broke my site (5 posts)

    I am relatively inexperienced at WordPress and I just tried to change the domain name for my site by changing the WordPress Address (URL) and
    Site Address (URL) to http://www.hawkswomen.org When that didn't work, I tried to change it back to http://www.ladyhawkshockey.org/hawks/. Now I can't get to any of my files to change the code manually. How do I fix this?

    Thank you.

    Change it back to http://www.ladyhawkshockey.org/hawks/ using one of the methods outlined in Changing_The_Site_URL. Once your site is working again, if you still want to change the site's url, let us know and we'll try to help.

    I can't get to any of the files. I am on the General Settings page, but any time I click to go anywhere else, it comes up with a page not found as the hawkswomen address.

    Where would I find the wp-config.php file if I could load anything? I don't have access to the files via FTP.

    Please try reading the page that I linked to above. If necessary, you will need to use whatever file management application that your host provides.

    Thanks, I did read it. I don't have access to the files on the host provider. I took over the site from someone else who set it up. Hopefully she'll be able to help me fix it.
