Your hosts certainly don’t know anything about WordPress! See Changing_The_Site_URL.
Thanks for the reply. I read the article and tried changing the url directly in the database using phpmyadmin. I didn’t know whether to reset both “siteurl” and “home” values to paulaneeley.nfshost.com or paulaneeley.com, so I tried both, and neither worked to access my dashboard again.
It looks like the only other option I could try (since I can’t access my dashboard) is to ftp to my site and try to find the functions.php file. I looked, however I could not find it.
Thank you for your help!
Set both urls back to paulaneeley.nfshost.com initially.
I tried that, and I also just tried editing the functions.php file using filezilla and adding this:
to the top of the file. Still no luck accessing my dashboard 🙁
Well, your site is working just fine. Where did you install WordPress on this domain?
My whole visible site works totally fine. Except the dashboard which I can’t access. If i try to go to http://paulaneeley.nfshost.com/wp-admin , it gives me an error message.
I’m not sure where I installed wordpress on my domain. I knew absolutely nothing about websites at the time (and little more now), so the process of installation was a blur :-p
Where could I look to find out and tell you?
Try asking your hosts for assistance with this question. It’s not something that we can determine.
I did, and they are the ones who screwed me up in the first place by telling me to change my site address 🙁
Do you know of anyone else I could ask safely to solve this problem for me?

I had a friend work on my site. He managed to get by dashboard back up and running, but now the actual pages of the site don’t work! Any suggestions?
Click on the menu at the bottom, you will see I get 404 errors.
Any help would be appreciated!
