Changed WordPress address (URL) & now I can't log-in (4 posts)

    I was trying to direct my site to to a temporary page while I install a new theme and overhaul my site http://www.madebywe.org, but I seem to have made things worse and now I can't get the log-in page to show up to get back into wordpress to undo what I did.

    Under General Settings I changed my wordpress address (URL) to http://www.madebywe.org/home.html and the site address to http://www.madebywe.org/home.html

    Clearly I messed things up & now I can't log in to undo it!

    I normally go to http://www.madebywe.org/wp-admin to login, which doesn't work, and I have tried going to http://www.madebywe.org/home.hml/wp-admin and that isn't working either...

    Yeah, that was wrong. there should never be an "html" file as your home URL. you're going to need to access phpMyAdmin to fix it.

    Changing the Site URL

    I did a similar thing a good while ago.

    I am with hostgator so I just contacted there live chat support and they sorted it for me within minutes. If you are with Hostgator then I recommend contacting them, it might save you a lot of headaches!

    If you are not with Hostgator then I am of no help :P

    Good Luck
    Kind Regards

    Thanks y'all. I'm not with hostgator, I use fatcow, but I'll try contacting them.

    Shelly, I followed the steps on changing the site URL & have been refreshing like it says, with no success... any other thoughts?
