    Check this out (from the Moving WordPress article – could be some other useful tips in there for you):

    //FIXME: do comment/remove these hack lines. (once the database is updated)
    update_option('siteurl', 'http://your.domain.name/the/path' );
    update_option('home', 'http://your.domain.name/the/path' );

    You would add the above lines to your wp-login.php file – read the article I linked to first of all for full details 🙂

    I would like to try this but, I cannot access my dashboard to get to any files. I had read this article but all is for nothing if I cannot access the dashboard.

    Thank you for your prompt reply to my problem. Any other assistance would be appreciated.

    I had read this article but all is for nothing if I cannot access the dashboard.

    Use an ftp client or the file manager in your hosts control panel to edit the files. No access to the dashboard is required to reset the URL’s. Here are the instructions. Please read carefully before deciding which method is right for you: Changing The Site URL

    Wow Clayton and Barry.

    You were both right on the money. Thanks for clearing up the fact that I did not have to go through the dashboard. I used the edit wp-config.php solution and BAM, the site works fine now.

    Thanks guys. If you email me your mailing address, I will get something nice in the mail for you.
