    People, I really need help!
    I am beginning as admin of a blog and I accidentally redirected it to a directory that doesn't exists and now I can't find the way to undo it because the wp-admin section can't be accesed.

    The domain blog's settings were:
    URL news.ilovemusicibuymusic.org

    but I set one of them like this:
    URL news.ilovemusicibuymusic.org/wordpress

    I repented to do so but accidentally pressed the button and because of that now I can't access the wp-admin section but when I enter the blog address, the pages are all there but no theme is shown.

    Please, this was an accident and I have to solve this problem as soon as possible.

    I was in the "Settings" section in the Admin Panel and I changed one URLs and accidentally pressed the button accepting the changes.

    All the pages were hosted in wordpress so I don't have them in my server. I don't know if you understand me.

    I'm trying to understand iridiax's answer because I'm new.

    If you have access to your MySQL database, look for the 'options' table and find the url and rest it to what it should be. I made this same mistake when I first began using WP.

    Hello I read iridiax` response and all the alternatives tell me to modify certain files. But the problem is that there is nothing hosted in my domain, just an index.php file that has nothing on it.
    Does any one know what is going on?

    how is that possible if you changed the url's in your admin section?
    give us a link to your install so we can not help so blindly.

    ok - your install is here

    you log in here

    your admin is here

    the problem with your site is one of the 2 url's in your
    admin - settings
    points to wordpress.org so it's whacking your site

    if you can log in you must change both of the url's to

    if you can't log in, you will need to fix the url's with one of the following methods

    Samboll,iridiax and everyone, thank you very much for your support. I asked for the right ftp access to the former admin of the blog and i picked option number 1 in http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    It worked perfectly.

    God bless you!

    Hi - I have done the same thing and I can't understand the instructions for how to change it back. I have got filezilla - so have an ftp client, but this doesn't let me open files to edit them. How can I do this to follow the steps above?

    Any help welcome as I can't get in to do anything on my site now and panicking?!?
