Locked out of Dashboard becasue of URL re-direct

Viewing 4 replies - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)
  • Do you have access to the MySQL database of WordPress, maybe via the Cpanel of your hosting provider?

    In that case you can change again the site URL form the wp_options table. The first option_Id (1) is always the site URL. Change it from there.

    I do have access to MySQL, and i located the option_id. I am confused as to what i change. What i see listed is:

    Field: option_id
    type: BIGINT
    Length/Values: 20
    Collation:
    Attributes: Unsigned
    Null: Not Null
    Default:
    Extra: Auto_increment

    I am confuesed when i go to edit the option_id table because i do not see any url fields or something ot “change”. Could yo ube a little more specific?

    I am using Godaddy as the host, and the MySQL server is Starfield Technologies. Thanks for your help!

    What you are seeing is the table structure. You need to see the table content by choosing the “browse” tab.

    Below is a screenshot from a sample installation. I highlighted the browse button, the table content and the Edit button you need to use to change the site URL. If you notice on the right of the edit button there is the test URL, http://www.local.com

    Thanks so much! Your advise was spot on. Thanks! The screenshot was perfect. Thanks
