[resolved] Changed URL locked me out - W - "Cookies" issue (4 posts)

    Long story, as they all are. I was learning how to create children pages. I wanted the page header link to take me to the blog home page, not the web site... In Admin Options I change the URL from http://www.mypage.net to http://www.mypage.net/wordpress/index.php... OOps. Now I am totally locked out. When I try to access I get the "cookies must be enabled"... which has not been an issue ever before. I have been using 2.3.1 for weeks with no problems.
    I have replaced all the files in the WordPress "root" directory, and all the files in the Admin directory. I had made a local copy of all these a week ago. But this has not allowed me in to the page yet. I have a backup of the PHP files, and can drop and restore if this is the problem, but hate to do so since something *could* go wrong. The question is = if changing the URL as I did could lock this up, which files does it write to that I should replace? I did search but never found a real fix for the cookies issue, so hopeing with this information someone can tell me what needs replaced.
    Thanks,

    Don't do that ever!
    (especially when you don't know what you are doing...)

    Okay, I can take my lumps... just wish you had told me that last night before I changed it!
    Thanks a lot! I followed the directions and in two minutes I was back in business!

    Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or whatever you may, or may not, celebrate.
