    You’ll need to change the URL’s back:

    Thanks WPyogi,

    I’ve read the link and tried the following first:

    Changing the URL directly in the database. problem was i couldn’t find

    Look for the home field in the table and click Edit Field. Note There are several pages of tables inside wp_options. Look for the > symbol to page through them.
    In the input box for option_value, carefully change the URL information to the new address.
    Verify this is correct and click Go to save the information.

    I now did get the normal login again, but couldn’t log in.

    Then tried Edit wp-config.php

    Nothing changed, but i noticed that I could go directly to my url http://localhost:8888/mywebsite/

    It lacked pictures etc and clicking menu buttons resulted again in

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    I also tried to put in a new ‘unique authetication key’ in wp-config.php
    Maybe that screws it up?

    So probably one step forward, two steps back…

    After reading what seemed like a zillion posts and suggestions I still couldn’t get my login to work.

    A friend suggested to backup the theme folder and replace it with a newly downloaded one (I’m using Evolve). And VOILA!!!

    Still not quite sure what caused the occasional weird dashboard look, but for now I’m over the moon.

    Thanks
