    I changed a url on my settings page – must have changed the wrong one because now I can’t get back into the admin!

    Is there a way to get in via the hosting site? Any way to view the settings page from there and change the url back to the right one?

    I’m at a loss! Thank you – Sally

    Thank you! Where do I find the wp-config file? I’ve looked in all the folders in my cpanel and can’t find it…

    I found it – it was in the public_html file. But nothing about the settings and I don’t see the “new” url to change it back to the old one… I’m reading the other solutions again.

    Sorry – I feel so dense…

    In the wp-config.php file, the instruction is to find

    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://example.com/wordpress’);

    and change the url. but in my config file, there is nothing that reads WP_SITEURL or HOME. Do I create it and put it in there?

    OK, it’s fixed. I did the http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/ fix… can’t believe it actually worked the way it was supposed to.

    Thank you so much. You are a genius.

    Glad it worked; right, if those WP_SITEURL and WP_HOME constants aren’t there, you just add them. But the phpMyAdmin method is equally effective.
