Help! I'm locked out of admin account

  • Hi. I inherited a WordPress site, and it somehow reverted to an old version of the site today. In trying to fix it, I attempted to have it reference the directory where I thought the correct theme resides. However, after doing this update, I can no longer access any of the admin menus now since it says the directory doesn’t exist. I’m effectively locked out of the admin menus. How can I fix this? I was trying to contact a WordPress person, but didn’t see any way to contact them.

    I think that you’re best bet is to go via FTP and look to see where the theme is and then make sure that the wp-config.php is pointing to the right database.

    In the database, in the wp_options table, you should be able to find the siteurl and homeurl. Make sure that these match what you see on the server.
