[resolved] URL Change (9 posts)

    Hi,

    recently i disabled SSL-Support on a website, so basically all "https://" now changed into "http://". That broke the wordpress, naturally. I could think of some ways to fix it, like dumping, regexping and restore the database. However, are there simpler ways to accomplish this?

    It would be the easiest way to enable both http and https in parallel and then changing the url in the admin panel from https to http. That will be all ...

    That's not an option, unfortunately.

    Then you have to go to the database (with phpMyAdmin or something like that) and change the following rows in the <prefix>_options table:

    - siteurl
    - maybe fileupload_url and
    - home

    Thank you, I wasn't sure what in detail I would have to change :)

    Only 2 URLs that need manual changing.

    If you're running wp2 you will also need to delete the wordpress cache - it stores the blog and website url as well. There are instructions on the 'Moving WordPress' page:

    Thanks alot, nice description indeed, although i don't use phpmyadmin. but it's helpful to change that with mysql console anyway.

    kudos to you all
