    How can I reset the WordPress address URI and the Blog address (URI) without using the dashboard ---> Options --> General page.

    I chanaged it, not knowing what it was, and now i can no longer get into the dashboard.

    Where is this value stored? Is it in the database or a file? If so, how can I change it?

    It's in the database as "site_url" and "home" values.
    About changing them in the mysql db, see the tutorial:

    I have done the same thing,

    However am having difficulties logging into the database as it is not hosted on my clients server.

    Is it possible to change these values using FTP access?

    Thanks

    Ok, so I have managed to login to the database using MySQL Query Browser.
    The layout is different to the view inside PHP MyAdmin as shown here:

    Would anyone know which address I need to fix in the MySQL query browser?

    Thanks
