    I'm helping a friend with his website http://www.radarwatches.com which had a redirect to http://www.radarwatches.com/new for his home page.

    I was trying to remove the /new for SEO purposes and read that I should change the WordPress URI and Site URL on the Settings > General page. So I removed the /new and saved the settings...

    Now the website cannot be reached and I am unable to log back into my admin account to put the setting back.

    Please somebody help me!

    Thank you,

    That is not the place to change those settings.
    This can be fixed, but it is tricky.
    Do you have FTP access?
    Do you have CPanel?

    It appears cpanel exists on that hosting.

    My suggestion would be to login to this.
    Open the phpmyadmin tool.
    Select the database (hopefully there is only one)
    Select wp_options table.

    You should be able to find these options within that table, you will need to set them back to their previous values.

    If the phpmyadmin tool is new to you, you may wish to get assistance from a developer with this.
    I suspect there are also tutorials online.
