    Change those settings back – see:

    Thanks a lot. Have read the explanation. Where do I find the wp-config.php file? I am quite new to this, and not much of a programmer.

    you will have to use ftp to see the file is where you installed wordpress.

    Eh, ftp? to where? I’m rather new, and not familiar with ftp, except I know it’s a file transfer protocol. So this php file is not on my local pc?

    No – it’s on your remote server. You will need to use FTP to access it (or whatever file management application your host provides).

    Thanks. Will my remote server’s address look something like this:
    http://www.wordpress.com/mywebsitename/wp-config.php ???

    No. You cannot access the file via a web browser.

    OK. So how can I access this wp-config.php file?

    Hi WPYogi! I have read and read the explanation you sent me a link to. I think the Relocate Method looks poosible for me to do. But already at the first point I am lost:
    1. Edit the wp-config.php file.

    Where/how do I do this? I have no idea how to access this file, because I don’t know where/how to find it. I have understood that it is not on my pc. Hope you can shed some light on this for me.

    Thanks for all good intentions to various replyers.

    What host do you have? When you log on to your host, and manage your domain, there should be an FTP manager/Login to SFTP. You can probably find more info in the support section of your host. That would be the first step. Otherwise you can use FileZilla (which would need to be downloaded via the internet) to login to your FTP server.

    Oh, thanks GMoney. That’s how lost I am. Yes, I have bluehost.com. And I have found the email with various info, also a ftp address. Hopefully I’m on the right track now. I have logged on with ftp, and find some directories. I’ll probably manage to find the wp-config.php file there. Thanks :-).

    Good! You will probably need to edit the file in a code editor (ex. notepad). First back-up your existing file before changing it. Then go in and make the alterations, save and upload the new file to the FTP server. Hope that makes sense.

    Yes, I have located the file. I have copied it. Thanks GMoney. Now I will make the changes. The question is then: how do I use the ftp command/file to upload the modified wp-config.php file to the same directory?

    I have now maange to change the wp-config.php file, and entered:
    define(‘RELOCATE’,true);
    in the file, and copied it back to original location.
    When i Write the url to login, I get the login window, but I still don’t amanage to login. My original problem was that I changed the url in wordpress while eidting from
    http://mywebsite.com to
    http://www.mywebsite.com
    without changing the password. And it seems to be the same. I don’t get to login.

    Where did you get that? From the article linked above:

    Add these two lines to your wp-config.php, where “example.com” is the correct location of your site.

    define(‘WP_HOME’,’http://example.com’);
    define(‘WP_SITEURL’,’http://example.com’);
