Accidentally Changed WordPress Directory – Now 'Error establishing a…'
Let me first start out by saying I’m not exactly the most webcode handy person here. Just bare with me with the solutions. Now… what I did, and how I dealt with it.
First off I was in the WP-ADMIN area. And I changed the directory from http://www.gdesign.me/gd to http://www.gdesign.me/admin. Unfortunately this stopped all forms of contact with my website. I could not get to the wp-admin page to login, and the site was unresponsive. I did not receive the “Error establishing a database connection” error.
I then logged into my PHPmyadmin and changed the options back to the http://www.gdesign.me/gd instead of the /admin. It was here that I started receiving the “Error establishing a database connection” when attempting to connect to my site. Upon receiving this, I panicked, found my database backup and imported it to revert. However the error persisted.
I have my site backed up, and my database. I have looked at countless threads in both the wordpress FAQ and normal threads, and it would be logical to conclude that this solution is out there and that I have missed it.
What’s stopping me from fixing it and using the solutions already available? 50% I don’t understand what to do, and 50% the issues with solutions are slightly different to my own.
I’m really sorry about this. However I’m incredibly desperate.
