How to reverse a boneheaded double forwarding domain situation? (4 posts)

    Hey all,

    Ok, not my brightest moment. I have a big fellowship application due in a few hours, and I created a domain name specifically for this application with my latest portfolio on wordpress (e.g., kevinapp.org). My intention was to forward my normal domain (kevinhome.com) to this domain, so that for a few weeks all anyone would see would be kevinapp.org. The other option would be to do forwarding w/ masking for kevinapp.org, but I wasn't sure if sub-domains would work on this (e.g., kevinapp.org/blog).

    First, I went into GoDaddy and set up forwarding w/ masking for kevinapp.org. Then, without seeing it live yet (oops, should have been patient) I went ahead into the wordpress settings and changed kevinhome.com to kevinapp.org, and hit save. Now I can't login to wp-panel at all, and neither works!

    What would be the best way to fix this situation and achieve my initial desired outcome? Thanks so much.

    Kevin

    for the second part, changing your site url you need to follow one of these solutions

    for the first i am not sure, i think i redirect would be enough?

    Backup first!
