my url was originally wehatewaste.net
I attempted to change it to http://www.wehatetowaste.com
Neither urls are allowing me to access the wp-admin.
I redirected the urls using my hosting service’s myphpadmin, which did not work, and then I redirected through the wordpress dashboard through settings > general > and changed the wordpress address to http://www.wehatetowaste.com but kept the site address as http://wehatewaste.net
I have spent all day trying to manually change the files back to wehatewaste.net so that I can access my dashboard again.
I have updated the code in various files and nothing is working – I have tried updating wp-login.php to say
//FIXME: do comment/remove these hack lines. (once the database is updated)
update_option(‘siteurl’, ‘wehatewaste.net’ );
update_option(‘home’, ‘wehatewaste.net’ );
I updated wp-config.php to say
I created sitereset.php following these instructions http://www.allancollins.net/200/wordpress-reset-reset-the-site-url/
NOTE: I am using the theme YOKO but installed it through wordpress, not manually on my computer. I am using filezilla to access my files, and I am unable to locate the active theme. Therefore, I was not able to update the functions.php file. I attempted to update the default 2011 functions.php, but it did nothing.
Please help me to access my dashboard.
