Originally my site was on URL http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk/admin.
Before going live, I wanted to change the site URL so it was just http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk.
I did the following:
– Settings>General> Site Address (URL) – changed to http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk and left WordPress Address (URL) as http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk/admin
– Appearance>menus>Home – changed URL to http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk
Unfortunately my site isn’t live on either URL, even with a hard refresh.
Any advice? I can’t find the wp-config.php file in my filemanager.
Also, my homepage doesn’t seem to appear on the menu or in the list of pages. Any advice on that either?
Give a good read of this guideline and reset your URL:
Ok I did that by updating the wp-config.php file with these lines:
The WP URL (the admin area) was then accessible at http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk/admin but the site itself at http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk was not. I was getting the error: ‘Directory has no index file.’ but the index.php file is there.
I checked for any references to the old domain name in my template files and couldn’t find any.
I then removed the code above from wp-config.php and the WP URL was accessible but the home URL (or any behind pages) still wasn’t.
Any further advice?
Where did you install WordPress? At
Yes, at least that’s the URL I specified. I edit it at http://www.memorablemarketing.co.uk/admin/wp-admin. When I first built the site that was the admin link and also the home URL.
It looks like an incomplete WordPress installation. Is it a new site? If so, reinstall WordPress. If not tell us if you have a backup to restore the site?
It’s installed via ipage, and was fine until I changed home URL. I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks no probs. I haven’t backedup as files are stored in ipage file manager.
If you can restore MySQL database, it is better to go for a working fresh install and restore your database. Perhaps your host can help you with it.
