  • I was playing around in the Main Options area, and I changed the two boxes (WP location settings)



    And now the blog doesnt work at all, and I have no backups of it.

    I can get into the control panel, but toolbar links go to the wrong location. When I insert “/blog” into the address bar, I get the options page, but there is a problem with the referrer.

  • Have you got access to phpMyAdmin to look at the database?

    If you do, it’s simple:
    In the wp_options table, look for the following two options names, “siteurl” and “home”. Edit back to the original as appropriate.

    Or if you want to stick with the new url (ie. without “/blog”) and you have SSH shell access, you can try moving the contents of the “blog” subdirectory out into the web root area – usually “www” or “public_html”.

    As mooiness says, it the db. This might help too:

    Ok. I just went into the FTP area, and transferred the files.

    Now my RSS feed is not working.

    Any input would be appreciated.
