  • Try accessing the WP Admin area directly by typing in on your browser:


    Granted, I am assuming you have XAMPP for the local install. That’s the only system I am familiar with.

    In addition, if you did change the localhost URL, you can change it back by following these steps:

      1. Access the database for the local WP install via phpMyAdmin
      2. Go to the “options” table of the database of the local WP install (whatever you called it – for example wp_options)
      3. Locate the “siteurl” and “home” choices under this options table.
      4. Make the appropriate URL changes and save

    Hope this helps!

    Legend…. Thank You.

    Learning somthing new every day.

    Now to get the site live 🙂

    Awesome! It was my pleasure 😉

    While I got your attention, what’s the best document / video to follow for getting website i’ve developed on localhost up live? thanks


    I just answered this question for someone else, sorta :P. The only difference is that, in your case, you don’t need to worry about the WP Reset plugin since you will be transferring the info to a brand new live site that has nothing. You may still want to do the image linking checking (make sure the images didn’t break).

    This other tutorial will certainly help. In fact, this last tutorial is probably the best bet. Ring me again if you get stuck 🙂
