Locked out of my login.php (4 posts)

    Today I was messing around in my General Settings and I attempted to change the blog url and wordpress address from nataliaciolko.com/blog to nataliaciolko.com.

    I saved, realized that it wouldn't work because all the files are still in a /blog subdirectory in my hosting account, and I went back to the page and changed both addresses back to nataliaciolko.com/blog

    I can go to the address in the browser, see my homepage, but I cannot log in or access parts of the blog.

    Does anyone know how I can access my settings again? Neither nataliaciolko.com/blog/wp-admin.php or nataliaciolko.com/wp-admin.php work.

    Thank you!

    First, the login address is /wp-login.php (or /wp-admin will re-direct for you) and NOT /wp-admin.php

    Secondary, it looks like the address was not reverted correctly. Because going to http://nataliaciolko.com/blog/wp-admin re-directs to http://nataliaciolko.com/wp-login.php (see no "blog" in the address).

    See this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    (If that doesn't work, you'll have to dig into your database to fix this. But don't worry, that's easy)

    Finally, if you really want to switch your site's URL from http://nataliaciolko.com/blog/ to http://nataliaciolko.com/, it's pretty easy. Just let me know if you want to re-visit this, and I'll help you do it.

    Hey y'all,

    I appreciate the help and links!

    I have now editing my database, and also tried the patch from educhalk, and I still can't even see my blog!

    So I've done this part in PHPMyAdmin, as you can see...

    Yet... no results.

    Any thoughts appreciated.
