  • TO get round this, you will need access to the MySQL database admin panel for the site. Usually there is a MyPHPAdmin panel avaialbe from the ISP that hosts the website.

    And then,

    Update the site_url in the table wp_options field in the table back to to This is the quickest way to get back to your site’s blogs. otherwise you will lose the data if you re-install wordpress etc.

    Never mess with those values! They are not toys and they cannot be “fantasy” values. Must reflect the real location of your WP install/blog.
