Support » Fixing WordPress » Editing General Options in Code

  • Hello,

    I’m new to WP and was having trouble adding categories (I still am…I got the ajax permission error) I ended up changing my blog URL under admin > options > general options and now I can’t get back into the admin panel (I get a cookies error). How can I change the URL back using FTP? I believe it’s my only option since I can’t access the admin area. I looked in the options_general.php file but didn’t see anywhere to edit the html.

    Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Don’t ever edit any files… and don’t ever play with those two URI values – they are not toys, they are there for a reason!

    The fix:

    Hello Moshu,

    Thanks for the link. I followed the directions verbatim..I get this error:

    A session had already been started – ignoring session_start()

    in /home/….blog/emergency-url-change.php, line 82.

    Would it be easier for me to try to figure out how to change it in the phpadmin?

    I found this link in another reply by you:

    It solved that problem.

    The second part of my problem was adding categories. I get this error message:

    Not Acceptable
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /blog/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php could not be found on this server.


    Apache/1.3.37 Server at ….. Port 80

    I searched around for a solution, but could not figure out anything.




    ffr, what you saw with my script was a cookie issue of some kind..
