    I wanted to change the name of the page that points to my home page and I must have accidentally changed the actual site name. I cannot find the config file to manually change it back. I am using the template Reverence. Could you please tell me the name of the file that WordPress uses and where would it be located. I cannot log into the admin at all. I do have ftp access to make the change manually.

    you can change the site name in Dashboard - Settings - General

  3. If you changed the site url or home in the wp-admin under setting, you'll need to go to the database using phpMyAdmin and go to the wp_options table and look at both table entries, home url and site url. Once these are back to what they should be, you'll be able to login.

    Christine - Where will I find this database file once I install phpMyAdmin?

  5. If you can access your phpMyAdmin, you'll need the db username and password to login. Once logged in, the db should be right there.

    You'll find the info for your db in your wp_config.php file.

    That's the file I thought it should be but I opened it in a text document and didn't see what I was looking for. Thanks again.
