[resolved] Changing The Site URL (2 posts)

    Hello-
    I've found myself in the situation described here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    I changed the "HOME" and "SITE URL" settings in hopes of renaming the directory, and now I cannot access the site through the Administrative URL.

    I logged in via FTP(cyberduck) and located the wp-config.php ....
    but the WP instructions threw me off right here:

    Add these two lines to your wp-config.php, where "example.com" is the correct location of your site.
    define('WP_HOME','http://example.com');
    define('WP_SITEURL','http://example.com');

    what is this?- "where example.com is the correct location of your site"
    This is where i'm stumped, so I read into the next option of modifying the functions.php file.... but there is zero content on my site, so modifying the active theme's functions.php file seems pointless?? I just finished installation of WP when i made this mistake. Please help! Greatly appreciated.
