Support » Plugin: Redirection » How to edit Redirection redirects without access to WP admin portal

  • Resolved jfancke


    I accidentally set up a redirection that lets you get to the wp-admin page, but redirects for everything else.

    The problem I have is that after logging into wp-admin it redirects to wp-login.php which was included in my catch-all redirection.

    Is there anyway to edit the Redirection database without using the WP admin portal?

    There is not. You can disable the plugin by renaming the directory in your plugins directory. You can then delete the plugin and re-install.

    I see similar questions/replies on a couple of sites.
    Is there a list of standard exclusions(eg regex’s) that still allow ‘admin access’
    to an old site, but redirect all content?
    Similar as the OP, I want to move my site to another domain. But I would like to
    be able to login to the old domain for access/rules/cleanup/etc.
    thx, M

    You can use a ‘do nothing’ action to ignore whatever URLs you need access to:

    ok. thx. That indeed would (should) work.
    I’ve tried to see which URL’s should not be redirected. Afaict that is
    limited to:
    ^/wp-admin/* (slash optional)

    If you know of any other, would be nice to let us know.

    gr, M
