Tried to install SSL, busted whole site!
I’ve been working on an online store for a few weeks now and it’s almost ready.
But disaster has struck! I installed an SSL certificate on my site (I think)… I didn’t see anything happening to my site, and I didn’t see the https prefix on my url… so I was looking around. I ticked off a box in my WooCommerce settings, forcing secure checkout (and left another box that appeared unchecked that said “unforce when leaving secure checkout”.
And everything stayed the same. I should’ve gone to the cart page and beyond to see if my SSL was limited to the checkout screen… but I kept fiddling. And then I did something stupid!
I went to my General Settings, and changed the location of my WordPress site to https://electronic-smoke-shop.ca
Now I can’t get to my admin screen (Error 404 screen, with a link to send this error to the webmaster- which is me, right?) and my site looks like crap (still there, but nonsensical). It’s trying to go my secure site, which apparently doesn’t exist.
Please help! What can I do to restore the unsecure site?!
How do I get back to my WordPress admin screen?
I’ll worry about my SSL certificate later, but I need my site back.
I’m hoping somebody here can help me.
If not, I’ll have to start all over again… and that is devastating.
