    i edit the current theme function with those 2 lines of code fixed

    Edit functions.phpIf you have access to the site via FTP, then this method will help you quickly get a site back up and running, if you changed those values incorrectly.
    1. FTP to the site, and get a copy of the active theme’s functions.php file. You’re going to edit it in a simple text editor (like notepad) and upload it back to the site.
    2. Add these two lines to the file, immediately after the initial “<?php” line.
    update_option(‘siteurl’,’http://example.com/blog’);
    update_option(‘home’,’http://example.com/blog’);

    Use your own URL instead of example.com, obviously.
    3. Upload the file back to your site, in the same location. FileZilla offers a handy “edit file” function to do all of the above rapidly; if you can use that, do so.
    4. Load the login or admin page a couple of times. The site should come back up.
    5. Repeat the above steps, but remove those lines. IMPORTANT: Do NOT leave those lines in there. Remove them immediately after the site is up and running again.
    THIS FIXED IT UP THANKS
    CHEERS
