    The website of the newspaper for which I'm the online editor, wildcat.arizona.edu, migrated from http://www.dailywildcat.com long ago, but previous online editors decided (out of beligerence or ignorance) to keep our blogs page at blogs.dailywildcat.com. I finally got the administrator's login for WordPress from our editor in chief, and so I logged in today.

    I created a page on our site to try to re-map the blogs, making wildcat.arizona.edu/blogs2, then I changed the setting in the WP admin panel to reflect this change, and now the whole thing's a mess. I can't change it back to blogs.dailywildcat.com, because I can't even login anymore. Help?

    TO get round this, you will need access to the MySQL database admin panel for the site. Usually there is a MyPHPAdmin panel avaialbe from the ISP that hosts the website.

    And then,

    Update the site_url in the table wp_options field in the table back to to blogs.dailywildcat.com. This is the quickest way to get back to your site's blogs. otherwise you will lose the data if you re-install wordpress etc.

    Never mess with those values! They are not toys and they cannot be "fantasy" values. Must reflect the real location of your WP install/blog.

    Fix(es)

    Also, in the latest version you can just edit the wp-config.php file and reset the two values.
