Support » Fixing WordPress » changed site address to match WP address and now nothing works

  • Resolved kimb0091


    I’ve been working on getting my new wordpress website up and running for a week now. I FINALLY finished after hours of working on it this evening, and now it’s not coming up correctly. I was researching into why my contact form wasn’t loading and I wasn’t getting some of the emails. One of the suggestions from this site ( was to make sure that my wordpress address and my website address are the exact same. So I changed one, and THEN the *warning* message popped up after I already hit save and it was too late. Nothing looks right now, even after I switched it back to how it was entered before. I could just cry. I’m so bad with this back end stuff and now all my work is down the drain. Can anyone help me out, pretty please?

  • Hi kimb0091,
    you can define in site-Url and wordpress url in wp-config.php file too using FTP

    define( 'WP_SITEURL', '' );
    define( 'WP_HOME', '' );

    just use this code and replace your url with “”
    hope it`ll help you

    Thanks for responding! I went into filezilla and found my wordpress config php file, but I’m not really sure what to do with it? If I double click it it says “file transfer sucessful”, but I’m not sure how to actually get in there to change it. Sorry – really bad with this back end stuff.

    again go to filezilla and dont double click it just right click on it and whwn you right click on it there is a option view/edit just click on it and itll open in your default text editor then place the code in last and save it
    and the other option is when you double click it it`ll download on your local computer ,then open it ,edit it and again upload it .

    Thank you so much! Back up and running. 🙂
