Cannot simply find the page to log in to the back end

  • You can take a look at the database on the wp_options table which will show you the the base url then you would just append /wp-admin

    Would you be referring to the WP data base or cPanel? If you are referring the WP database then it seems impossible as I cannot even find an option to log in at all

    You can’t just change the site URL like that. Change it back then follow the proper instructions from moving WordPress to the root directory.

    You can edit your database using tools provided by your web host, such as phpmyadmin. There’s no need to login to WordPress.

    Thanks Guys. One for you fonglh; I agree with you about making the adjustments through my host account. I’m a complete novice at these things and finding it a little difficult to locate the correct location to make the adjustment. I went into the phpmyadmin but wasn’t sure where else to navigate to. In phpmyadmin the available tabs are database, SQL, status, process, export, import, variables, chasets and engines. Any ideas what next please? Thanks again.

    Have you read the section titled “Changing the URL directly in the database” on the Codex page? It already tells you what to do.

    Thanks again.
    The link you provided definitely opened my mind in the the area of the core role of cpanel. I followed the section titled “Changing the URL directly in the database” but still did not seem to get any result. My aim is to just get access back into the WP admin page but this seems non existent. In the phpmyadmin section, I altered the siteurl as well as the WP admin site (“name”) both to .com and starting with http://www.; This did not work so I added /wp-admin to the wp admin site (i.e. “name”) and this still did not work. Any ideas please? I’m clearly missing something. Thanks.
