Changed web URL and now WP isn't functioning (5 posts)

    Someone asked this before, but I couldn't find the post anymore, so I hope someone can help me.

    I messed with the web URL as well as the WP URL so now neither works. If I use the old URL it brings me to a page filled with just writings, but it's not in the WP format. When I tried to login into WP, it doesn't work because it directs me to a new URL that doesn't exists. I don't know what 'PhpMyAdmin' is and I highly doubt I'm able to work around that. Does anyone know what I can do to fix it?

    I don't really know of any other way than going into the database via phpMyAdmin.
    See this tutorial:

    Do you know how much it would cost me to get PhPMyAdmin and where I would be able to purchase that program?

    I checked on the site, but it just has these different versions.

    The thing about the database is that I don't own the website. My blog is hosted by my friend and he's not here right now. I'm actually trying to fix it before he finds out and lecture me on handling things carefully.

    You don't need to "purchase" phpMyAdmin - it should be installed on the host server by the host company. Or is your friend the "host company"? - when you say he is hosting your blog, does it mean on his computer/server or on his web site as subdomain or subdirectory?
    Anyway, if you don't have access to your website's user interface... there isn't much to do.
