    I accidentally changed my wordpress URL under settings, and now I can't login. I have tried everything.

    When i go to my domain which is pointed to my site, there is no stylesheet and the pictures and media are just scattered all over the screen.

    Does anyone know how I can log back in?

    I have tried:

    podcast6738.com/wordpress/wp-admin (what i used to use)
    podcast6738.com/wp-admin

    PLEASE HELP!! I have been marketing the site all day, and now it looks horrible.

    You need to change the URL back to what you need it to be. There are two places in your DB to do this in the options table. Both "siteurl" and
    "home". Instructions can be found here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL#Changing_the_URL_directly_in_the_database

    I've done the same thing in the past. I had to access my database directly on my hosting server to change the URL in the database. If you go to your hosting company's control center, you should be able to log in to your database and will likely be able to access it via phpMyAdmin.

    If you have phpMyAdmin available, log in with the username and password in your wp-config.php file. On the left nav bar, click on your database to select it. Once it loads, click on your options table (the default name for this is "wp_options". Once your table info loads, click the "Browse" tab at the top. You should see your url near the top of the listings.

    Click the pencil icon to edit it to the correct URL and you should be all set.
