Moving a Root install messed up my wp-admin (2 posts)

    Made an attempt to move existing wordpress to a new directory location. After making changes in ./wp-admin/options-general.php, got an error. I then followed step by step instructions on http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory but failed to recover site.

    I am not able to load wp-admin thus I can't log back into my admin Dashboard.

    Please help!

  2. This is why we don't edit core WP files.

    You will first need to download a fresh copy of WP. Then, you will need to use FTP or your hosts CPanel to upload the fresh copy of "wp-admin/options-general.php", overwriting the "tampered" one.

    If your site still does not load.. you will need to use one of the methods mentioned here to change your site url back.
