[resolved] Changed website link (9 posts)

    Okay, my website is Netsua.com. I went into options and changed the website link. I forgot what it was called, but I changed 2 things (one for blog and one for site) from netsua.com to google.com (don't ask why, but it has to do with kids from school)

    Now when you go to netsua.com you get the site but unformatted. Also, all the links are "google.com/?page_id=56" kind of things which get the google error page. If you change "google.com" to "netsua.com" though, you get the page just unformated just like the main page.

    Now I can't get back to the control panel place to do anything and change it back to "netsua.com". Is there a way that I can do this? If not, I can copy all the content and start over, but that would take a VEEEERY long time, and I don't look forward to it.

    Is there a way? Please help!

    Is that the only way? I don't understand phpMyAdmin and I'm worried I could mess even more up

    If you have phpmyadmin then the steps there should make sure nothing goes wrong. The only alternatives would be using the commandline through shell access - which I find very scary indeed.

    Take a look at what is needed and your own phpmyadmin - if you see any differences or have questions, just ask - we'll answer - honest!

    alright, I installed it from the site, but now I have no idea what to do. Do I need to set something up?

    PhpMyAdmin, and there are all the files, but I don't know how to set up something to get to what I want to do. It's so confusing.

    EDIT: Okay, I figured it out. thanks!

    I guess you misunderstood something. phpMyadmin should be on the server - installed by the host.
    And you have to go in and export your database (=make a backup).
