Support » Fixing WordPress » changed wordpress url and email address – now can’t log in or load localhost

  • Resolved meriellloyd


    Hi forum,

    I made a big mistake. I changed the wordpress URL (settings, general) and the account email address at the same time and now nothing is working.

    I didn’t get a email to say the address had changed.


    I’ve had to create a new account to send this message.

    … i don’t understand. Could you say that in layman’s terms, please?

    Hi @meriellloyd ,

    You could go into the database (via terminal or a GUI like phpmyadmin) and in the options table restore the URL to the old one (I assume it was http://localhost/ earlier). The option you would need to check and change are “home” and “siteurl”.

    Let me know if this helps get your site back up.

    Ok thanks. I have managed to change it but its just coming up with the error

    Not Found
    The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

    • This reply was modified 2 years, 8 months ago by meriellloyd.

    Most server applications like WAMP, XAMPP, and MAMP install PHPMyAdmin application that should be accessible with the URL http://localhost/phpmyadmin/. You would then be able to login with the MySQL credentials and then be able to view and manage your databases and its tables.

    And in your case try going into the WordPress database and try the options table changes as mentioned earlier.

    Also, the account/email address you added to your WordPress installation(s) are not in any way connected to your account.

    Ok that’s good to know. I changed the settings but i’m now just getting error
    Not Found
    The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

    Ohh great, it seems you were able to do that.
    Could you check the web server root file location in MAMP where all the WordPress files are present to see if the file index.php is present?

    Also, it would be great if you could share if you are using the MAMP server on a Mac or a Windows system?

    Thread Starter meriellloyd


    Yes, i can confirm it is there. I am using MAMP on a mac

    Okay great. Could you try to view the “readme.html” or “license.txt” files on the browser? So, the URLs would be something like http://localhost/readme.html and http://localhost/license.txt.

    If they open, there is something changed with the PHP configuration. If they do not, then its an issue with the Apache/Nginx configuration regarding the site root folder.

    Thread Starter meriellloyd


    They don’t open. I just says it can’t be reached.. 🙁

    Okay, so something with Apache/Nginx is not working as required.
    1. Could you check the Web Server settings to make sure the folder path is the correct location where your files are?
    2. And also check the mamp port settings,
    3. And after that could you try to do a stop and start of all MAMP services?

    @meriellloyd, I hope you changed the readme and license URLs to what your MAMP URLs look like.

    I just saw that MAMP has URLs like http://localhost:8888 or http://localhost:7888.

    So for you, the readme and license URLs would be something like,

    By any chance, did you change them to the default port 80?

    Thread Starter meriellloyd


    This was my original url to access wordpress back end. http://localhost:8888/CP%20wordpress/wp-admin/ does that look correct or should it just be http://localhost/

    I’ve done both your suggestions 1 and 2 from your last message.

    I only just bought my hosting with bluehost today… could that have something to do it with? before I was just viewing it locally.

    Thread Starter meriellloyd


    No i did’nt change the default port.

    Those link still didn’t work.
