Blocked out of WP website – Please help!

  • Hello – My business partner and I are new to WP –

    We have a website – http://www.davidchernew.com that we use for testing and making wireframes. We are using the Headway theme. However, today we found out that clients are finding this test site and we need to find a way to simply disable it or password protect it. So, I was fooling around in Headway when I decided to change the URLs to http://www.davidchernew12.com. Now I can’t get it in using the Admin and what’s showing up are raw html links that get 404 errors.

    Please help – I contacted Headway who said to contact you guys. I hope I haven’t lost any of the content.

    Thanks much.

  • You’ll have to go into MySQL or your database manager and, in the wp_options table, look for the 2-3 locations of davidchernew12.com and change them manually to davidchernew.com.

    Thanks iam, so that’s in the WP software, correct? Do you think that I’ve lost the content or is it still there?

    Lastly, is there a feature in WP software that allows you to disable the site or password protect it in a simple one click?

    Thanks again…so much!
