Problem with login to wp-admin (2 posts)

    I installed wordpress on a sub-folder and pointed the domain there. Site loads perfectly. But wp-admin loops back to the login page. I think there is a problem with the General>Settings url info, but I can't get in to change it. is there a file somewhere with the info that I can change via FTP?

    I am afraid to reinstall the WP theme in case I lose all the pages and the work we have done.

    Appreciate any help.

    You can use PhpMyAdmin or any other tool to connect to MySQL database. I am sure your hosting provider gives you access to PhpMyAdmin. Once connected:

    1. select the WordPress database
    2. Open the wp_options table (p.s. if you changed the prefix then open <prefix>_options table.
    3. Option_ID 3 is your website URL (siturl). Change the URL from there and save the changed.

    If you need help connecting with the database or so let us know.
