[resolved] Need to change WordPress Address but can't log in (3 posts)

    I had a website up and running at http://www.jimchaseley.com but my themes "Blog" button wasn't working correctly. It was linking to the address of my WordPress installation (in a directory called /wp) rather than my website address.

    Whilst trying to sort this out I foolishly changed the WordPress address in General Settings to remove the /wp directory. The website no longer appears correctly and I can't access the admin area. Is there a back door method for solving this? I use Filezilla but can also edit files in cPanel.

    To sum up:
    My website url is http://www.jimchaseley.com
    I changed the WordPress url from http://www.jimchaseley.com/wp to http://www.jimchaseley.co

    This should help you:

    You can add the correct url to the wp_config.php file to get yourself up and running. Fairly straight forward advice in the page above.

    Thanks Matt - I used the database option and now everything works well! Many thanks - you've saved my bacon :-)
