    WP Forum:

    I'm getting a 404 error and not able to get my WP login credentials -

    Here's my problem:

    1. - I went into WP General Settings and changed the WP Address (URL). The address I used was for a different site.

    2. - In Addition, in the General Settings I also changed the Site Address (URL). Again the address I used was for a different site.

    After I refreshed, WP kicked me out and I can no longer get back in. I should also mention that the current site was in MAINTENANCE MODE. Furthermore, I checked the wp_config.php file and did a system restore to a previous date but still getting the 404 error page.

    I'm not very technical, what should I do or try next?

    Thanks kmessinger your information was helpful. Two things; 1. my wp-config.php never showed that it was modified so I then 2. Went into the mysql database and located the "site url" in one of the tables and edited the address back to the original. Everything is back online.

    Thanks again,
