    Help please. ASAP.

    I changed the URL link to the site from http://www.jayboxdesigns.co.uk/wordpress to http://www.jayboxdesigns.co.uk and when I go on it. It can't find it! It says:

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    HELP ME PLEASE!

    Did you follow the instructions to update the .htaccess from the codex?

    Did you follow all the steps in the codex?

    Set it as:
    wordpress address: http://site.com/wordpress
    site address: http://site.com

    Copy the index.php file and .htaccess files to the root

    Open your root directory's index.php file in a text editor
    Change the following and save the file. Change the line that says:
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files:
    require('./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php');

    No. I just went into settings and changed them BOTH to http://www.jayboxdesigns.co.uk so I can't access anything. I have just ripped everything off my server as a backup incase :( But what can I do from here?

  7. You'll have to access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel) and manually change the siteurl and home values.
