    I've got this little problem. I've probably done something very stupid.

    Anyway, I installed Apache, Mysql, php etc... really easily. I installed wordpress too but, you see everything worked then. Now, it doesn't. It must be something to do with my network connection which crashed and I stupidly decided to restart the modem when that wasn't the problem. Anyway, I seem to have unintentionally changed my IP address, and here is the problem: I set the blog's address originaly to localhost/blog/ but, later I realised my mistake and set it to myipadress/blog/. It worked. No problems there. Lastly, this is the actual problem; since my ip adress changed, when I go to the site to change the stuff, it refers me to the old IP, which gives a network time-out error since it doesen't exist anymore. Now, how would I change the IP address to my new one (since I can't access WordPress)

    so change the IP, youre using it just like the home_utl and the site_url

    PLEASE bookmark this:

    and if you absolutely must install a bunch of daemons on a box, learn how they work.
