    Hello Everyone,

    I was trying to create a static front page and i followed these instructions provided by WordPress support:

    If WordPress is in Root

    If you do not want to move your WordPress installation to another folder, or you are in a hurry, you can use these instructions or look below.

    1. Create a new folder on your site server for WordPress index.php file.
    2. Download index.php WordPress file and open it in a text editor.
    3. Change the require('./wp-blog-header.php'); line to require('../wp-blog-header.php');
    4. Save and upload the modified index.php file into the new folder.
    5. Login into your WordPress Administration Panel and go to Settings > General.
    6. Change your Blog URI pointing to the new folder. For example, if your site is http://example.com, and the new folder is called blog, enter http://example.com/blog.

    Now, upload your splash page to your root server folder.

    I must have forgotten something and now nothing seems to work well. I can't access the Administration panel, so I can't change the Blog URL back to what it was. I'm pretty sure the solution is to change the Blog URL but how can I change it if I can't access the Administration Panel?

    Thanks in advance.

    Try going directly to
    in your browser (obviously replace with your own domain name). If that doesn't work, I can explain to you how to edit the databse directly. Are you familiar with phpMyAdmin, or whichever database editor your host uses?

    I've done the same thing. I can't seem to access my admin panel and I'm totally lost. Is there a fix for this?
