Website Crazy! Can't log in to Dashboard...Help! (4 posts)

    Ok, let me just boil down the history here (i apologize in advance, i am new to this whole thing):

    I built my own website in Dreameaver, and it was terrible. So, a guy set me up a wordpress account, showed me how to use the dashboard, plugins, etc, and i made a new site. Now, the old site was at domain name: http://www.matturmy.com - and the new website was set up at http://www.matturmy.info.

    matturmy.info was listed as a subdomain to the hosting for matturmy.com, and the matturmy.com domain was forwarded to the matturmy.info/muwp.

    everything was working fine until i called godaddy, the hosting, and asked them how i could hid the "www.matturmy.info/muwp" in the address bar so it would read, "matturmy.com". --turns out all i had to do was forwarding with masking....but the tech guy i talked to had me going through the DNS and Nameservers and typing in different IP Addresses. Then he told me to go into my WP dashboard and change the site URL in general settings...DOH!...so that sucked, and i couldn't get into my dashboard. So, i followed forum instructions and went into my database PhpMyadmin and changed the site url back to matturmy.info/muwp...still can't login. and now i've talked to 3 other tech guys at godaddy.com, trying to fix what is wrong...all this to say. the website is screwed up, and i still can't log in to the dashboard. i'm lost. pissed. on tour, and need to have this website back up as soon as possible!!!!!

    HELP ME PLEASE!

    thanks. i went through that link and did the quick fix. no go.

    what i'm getting is a "username invalid" when i try to login through the global dashboard, and if i go to: http://www.matturmy.info/wp-admin, i get this:

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, support@supportwebsite.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    i am going to delete the lines of code back out of my functions.php page in the theme, and keep looking. I have no idea what is wrong. it says my username is now invalid, and my website looks insane....

    i have checked in mysql.php and my site url, and the "home" url are both at what they originally were before there was a problem at all. I just can't see what step i'm missing...anyone got ideas? I can't sell anything without this webiste being up!

  3. http://www.matturmy.info/blog looks fine to me... That said, I don't know what I'm looking for, so.

    As for the WP admin URL, I'm not sure why it's not http://www.matturmy.info/blog/wp-admin

    http://www.matturmy.info/wp-login.php again gives no errors.
