Support » Fixing WordPress » troube accessing Pages / Categories

  • Resolved loveuyoga


    Hello, I tried to change my root url (by removing in /wp) in Dashboard/General Settings but doing this completely messed things up.

    Managed to get my Dashboard back by editing ‘functions.php’ on my FTP

    but all the Pages / Categories are still missing when trying to navigate via the menu buttons, also can’t create new ones.
    Not Found
    The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Please help?


    (p.s i am a complete novice in wordpress, so please be gentle with me)

  • Looks like some issue with permalinks you have set up

    in wp-admin to to Settings > Permalinks.
    First click on Default Radio and Save changes

    see if your site works fine.

    If yes then try Post name and see if that works. If not its to do with the permalinks. you can read more about it here

    Prefect, many thanks for your help.

    I don’t suppose you know how to change my URL? (i.e from to so my site is more browser friendly.

    Thanks again

    well I believe your site resides in a subfolder named wp
    there are 2 options how you could do it
    the simplest being you move the files from wp to the main folder and change the url for siteurl and home url to

    another method is keeping all your files as they are in the sub folder but just moving 1 file i.e. index.php from the sub folder to the root folder and then modifying a couple of lines.
    you can search forums / web for more – search for how to install wordpress in subfolder
