    I was checking out all the features on wordpress and I got kicked out!

    I was looking at the general settings trying to get my “dubsatchcollective.com/journal” page to be my blog-new posts page. So I went to an option box that said “WordPress URL” and there was another one below that which had some other URL option box. So I put “dubsatchcollective.com/journal” in for the “WordPress URL” and “dubsatchcollective.com” for the other option. It immediatly stipped the theme off my website and I have no way to get back to the /wp-admin page! I can’t put the settings back to normal! I’ve tried everything to get to the /wp-admin page.”dubsatchcollective.com/journal/wp-admin and dubsatchcollective.com/wp-admin don’t work. What should I do? I can’t work on the site tell I figure it out and I need to get it done! I’m screwed!

    please help!

    Access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin and manually check, in the wp_options table, the siteurl and home values and make sure they are correct.

    Ok so I read the links but they are a little over my head. I don’t really understand how I’m supposed to do it.

    Make sure to backup your DB before you touch it.

    Of course you do have the option of hiring a consultant (I am not a consultant, I do this just for fun!).
    See http://jobs.wordpress.net/ if you want to follow that option.

    What would it take for you to fix it for me t-p? Cause I need it fixed pronto and I don’t know how to do it on my own! I’m sketched about paying anyone online though. I really need to get this fixed!

    If you like I can fix your problem register on my site and contact me through skype if you use it I have it on my website.

    So I put “dubsatchcollective.com/journal” in for the “WordPress URL” and “dubsatchcollective.com” for the other option.

    What did you have in those two fields before you made changes in them?

    Then I switched one to http://dubsatchcollective.com/journal

    I’m pretty sure it was the wordpress address I changed to /journal but it might have been the blog address.

    Access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin and manually change, in the wp_options table, the siteurl and home values to http://dubsatchcollective.com/

    you can change it back if you follw this steps

    If you have access to the site via FTP, then this method will help you quickly get a site back up and running, if you changed those values incorrectly.

    1. FTP to the site, and get a copy of the active theme’s functions.php file. You’re going to edit it in a simple text editor (like notepad) and upload it back to the site.

    2. Add these two lines to the file, immediately after the initial “<?php” line.

    update_option(‘siteurl’,’http://example.com/blog’);
    update_option(‘home’,’http://example.com/blog’);

    Use your own URL instead of example.com, obviously.

    3. Upload the file back to your site, in the same location. FileZilla offers a handy “edit file” function to do all of the above rapidly; if you can use that, do so.

    4. Load the login or admin page a couple of times. The site should come back up.

    5. Repeat the above steps, but remove those lines. IMPORTANT: Do NOT leave those lines in there. Remove them immediately after the site is up and running again.

    You can use what t-p suggested or what I posted the result will be that you changing database wp_options table back to what it was before you made the change.

    Success!!!! Thanks you govpatel!!!(sorry I don’t have skype) That fixed it!

    Thanks t-p too. My computer is to ghetto to install phpMyAdmin, that’s why I was having such a hard time.

    Thanks!

    You welcome
