Support » Fixing WordPress » Changed Site and Home URL, now can't access site

  • Greetings! I’m working on a website for my mother. Her root site, hosted by hostmonster, is:, and I had designed the wordpress site at: Once I finished the design, I altered the Site and Home URL’s to read, thinking I could point the WP to the domain. Instead, I now get a “404 Not Found. The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.” I can’t login to the dashboard either.

    I’ve spent hours reading suggestions online but nothing is working.

    Can anyone help me?

    I installed it through hostmonster, so I believe that was on the domain Then, when indicating where it should be found, I put After finishing design, I changed that to and that is when everything went south.

    Check via FTP where you installed WordPress.

    Hi. It is in a folder named “Redding” in the public_html file.

    Hello. Thank you for your responses to this point; I didn’t hear back from on the last one. Where should I have installed the WordPress?
