OOPS... I removed /group from my URL line and lost administration panel (9 posts)

    I was trying to figure out how to eliminate the flash page from my site and went to "settings/general" and removed "/group" from the end of the line in the URL field. I left it in the next field and now cannot get back to the Administration Panel and my site has completely changed (lost themes).

    How do I put the "/group" back on the end of my URL field in the Adminstration panel general tab when I cannot get back to the Adminstration panel?

    Thank you very much

    Thank you and I can see the instructions for changing. One hurdle remains...
    How do I navigate to phpMyAdmin?

    The instructions seem very straight forward if I can get to the starting point.

    you don't have to use phpmyadmin - you can use one of the other methods

    however, phpmyadmin should be in your host's control panel

    govpatel... fabulous video. Only one problem... you say to go into myphpadmin but I do not have this program on my system. I did a google search and found the website but it seems pretty complicated as I don't know how to set it up to find my particular website database. Do you have that one pointer... I simply cannot figure out how to reach the starting point. Thanks a lot.

    like Samuel B said, check your host's control panel. The program is not supposed to be installed on your system, unless you have installed a local test server.

    You can use functions.php method if you have a copy of your theme functions.php file add the two lines and upload it to theme folder once the urls are set take them two line out with admin editor
