    Hey, I had a similar problem when I had a typo in the new blog url. It kept redirecting me to an address that doesn’t even exist. I solved this in like two minutes with one SQL query:

    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = ‘http://your.new.address.com’ WHERE option_name IN (‘home’, ‘siteurl’);

    Execute that through phpMyAdmin or whatever..

    I used Expert WordPress to create this blog website. It worked fine, if I had just understood a little more what I was doing before I started. Is it possible to just start over and recreate it? I’m not sure I will be able to do what you both have suggested, and I can’t get into WordPress at all.

    kovshenin,

    do I substitute something for the words below “home” and “siteurl”?
    [WHERE option_name IN (‘home’, ‘siteurl’);]

    Hi, if have the same problem. Installation worked fine, I logged in and after some time changed the blog URL. Now I can’t login anymore. I already re-installed WordPress but for some reason it doesn’t work anymore. Deleted cookies, history etc still no success. Anybody an idea? tx Stan

    wendyrj65,

    no, all you substitute is the address of your website. ‘home’ and ‘siteurl’ are the standard field names in the wp_options table. I believe ‘home’ isn’t stored there since 2.7, but the query won’t fail anyway.

    @samboll,

    Tx. Worked fine! It’s easy when you know what to do. 🙂

    What if a 3rd party installed WordPress in my client’s server, and I have NO access to PHPMyAdmin?

    How do I fix this problem? :/

    Click samboll’s link… Honest, there’s a way there for you on it that involves first editing wp-config.php (which does not need phpMyAdmin). 🙂
