Support » Fixing WordPress » Lost everything! help! made changes to URL address

  • Hi,

    I went Settings -> General -> and tried getting rid of /wordpress from my URL. Obviously went about it completely wrong way!

    Can anyone help me out – is it terminal?

    I seem to have lost the template and all design – but still have some content

    I can’t get into dashboard – neither of these will work:

    When I put the later it says : Too many redirects occurred trying to open “”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.

    Please let me know if you can help!

  • try this :

    Connect with your FTP and add these two lines to your wp-config.php, where “” is the correct location of your site.



    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. Take a back up of function.php

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


    Use your own URL instead of, obviously.

    you can see this URL for more help –

    Hi Sam, Thanks for your advice. I did that and it didn’t work. I have to say – I hope that I did it correct – my FTP had so many older site templates etc, it took me a while to figure where to find ‘functions’

    My site has the content – but none of the formatting.

    I am with 123-reg and tried to download wordpress app again – not sure what i was thinking that would do – but it hasn’t done anything still can’t access administrative login page.

    perhaps I need to pay someone to come and figure it all out.

    what a mess 🙁

    Other way is to go to your phpmyadmin database find wp_option table and change the URL back to what you have before.
