(Before I start, I’m pretty sure my WordPress was up to date, so 3.5.1.)
I like to think I know what i’m doing but im an actual noob at websites.
I went on settings on my WordPress and decided to change both my URL for the site, and home. not realising the repercussions.
my website currently is http://www.luxphotographic.co.uk
Thats what you type in to get on the site, once there though the site is http://www.luxphotographic.co.uk/blog, at the beginning I remember being promted to choose something along the lines of …/blog etc
I wanted to get rid of the /blog, so once i did that. that was it. after that i couldn’t get onto my website. I couldn’t get onto the editor /wp-admin section to log in either, it was all just a messed up simplified version of my website.
So what do i do?
I naturally tried to find a solution on these forums, finding frequent people with the exact same problem. and saw that WordPress had given a solution in this ever happened.
I tried to Edit wp-config.php, with no success. Nothing happened what so ever, in actual fact. it got worse, it just told me ‘Error establishing a database connection’ when i tried to get onto the site.
So i undid what i did to the PHP file.
Then i tried ‘Edit functions.php’
Again, no success, nothing changed by step 3 and i couldn’t progress.
Then I tried the Relocate Method,
This again, did absolutely nothing. So i undid what i’d done.
and lastly, ‘Changing the URL directly in the database’, this, i couldn’t do because for some reason going on my phpMyAdmin, it had no tables or anything in the database that was there. no ‘wp_options’ like it tells me to find and edit.
So yer. I’m stuck. Nothing i’ve done works and it appears to be impossible and permanent.
So if i appear to be panicking or annoyed. but it really doesn’t make sense to me.
Thankyou for your help!
