    Totally new to WP. Very happy with how easy it was to get a site up and running for a rookie like me! But I screwed up. I had a site running and then went and copied the entire contents of the running site to a new location (a new file location on the same server). No links worked after that. So I deleted the file and tried to return to the original wordpress install. No luck either.

    I have edited the wp-options file using phpmyadmin to point to the correct site (after remedying the "infinite loop" problem of having the site and home point to the same location). But I have lost access to the wp-admin on the site and previous image files for example don't show up. Somebody with Jedi power please rescue me from myself.

    Many thanks.

    You may need to change some things in your wp-config.php file. Also, have you checked the Codex for this issue?

    thanks for the replies. I have read them and have had no luck getting wp-admin to return using the info. I can see the website and the pages are there but no images or links.

    I can't figure out if the site url should be xxx.org/wordpress or just xxx.org. If I set them both to the same value I get an infinite loop warning when I enter the address in a browser. The web server has the file 'wordpress' where the site's files are.

    I am running this site on a synology using virtual host.

    There is also a config file in the admin folder. Find it and make sure that it has the same credentials as the wp-config.
