Support » Fixing WordPress » Static Page Problem

  • 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, and the new folder is called blog, enter

    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.
