I’m on Mac. I installed MAMP and created localhost8888 where I worked on my new site using mesocolumn theme. It took me a lot of time of learning to get it to the shape I wanted. I installed plugins, made customisations, created pages and two posts.
I wanted to migrate to server and after reading online tutorials I changed my website url in wp-admin from http://localhost:8888/sebastianjasterwp/ to http://www.sebastianjaster.com (a domain I own that used to be on weebly.com). Then everything broke. I wasn’t able to access wp-admin, since I changed url. I googled it, changed phpAdmin for url and home back to http://localhost:8888/sebastianjasterwp/ and now I can only see home page, no menu links are working. I can access wp-admin, but it doesn’t allow my passoword. I changed it in phpadmin wordpress database and still nothing. When I click on “lost your password?” it gives me “The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.”
It’s a mess. After that I discovered I could have wp installed on my server. So I did. It’s too complicated to me to migrate from localhost to live server, so I could just repeat the steps I made while on localserver. It would be easier just to install same plugins and copy posts/pages. BUT now I can’t, since I can’t access wp-admin. I tried ading url/home in wordpress config.php, but without luck.
Please help! I know my site exists on my computer, but I can’t access it. I tried to find solution on forums, but no luck either.
UPDATE: When I click on a menu link it gives me: Not Found “The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.” I still have index.php and other files, but I don’t have any backups.
