Support » Networking WordPress » I changed my site and cant get in!

  • Ok. So I know little about wordpress and computer in general. I could not make one page be my “home” page at my site “www.kariannehorvei.com” so what I did (stupid as hell I guess), was to change my settings to “kariannehorvei.com/home” in the general settings control (I just tried something). So now if I go to http://www.kariannehorvei.com/wp-admin it automatically switches to http://www.kariannehorvei.com/home/wp-admin+++++ which do not exist. What can I do? I have the filezilla, it most be some documents I can change there?

  • Ok what I changed was wp:base_site_url and wp:base_blog_url

    Are you using the Multisite functionality? If not, you’re in the wrong forum.

    You could undo your change by using e.g. PHPMyAdmin to find the database table which holds this data, and changing it back. I guess it’s probably this one, but I haven’t confirmed that: http://codex.wordpress.org/Database_Description#Table:_wp_site

    Okei. Thanks.
    Shall I change the option.php file? I found something I might have to change:

    if ( !is_multisite() ) {
    if ( !defined( ‘WP_SITEURL’ ) )
    $whitelist_options[‘general’][] = ‘siteurl’;
    if ( !defined( ‘WP_HOME’ ) )
    $whitelist_options[‘general’][] = ‘home’;

    If this is correct, what shall I change it too then?

    KarianneH, I think you should not change your files unless you do know quite a bit about it. Changing your homepage does not require you to do this, you can do this from within your WP dashboard > settings > reading

    My advice would be to change everything back to where it was and to make the desired change through the dashboard.

    Don’t edit core files EVER unless you know exactly what you’re doing, and are trying to make a patch for core.

    You will hate it when you upgrade.

    so what I did (stupid as hell I guess), was to change my settings to “kariannehorvei.com/home” in the general settings control (I just tried something).

    You know … that’s not available in Multisite, right?
