    Hi, i have big problem. I installed WP to wamp server. Then i made a webpage. After that i wanted to put it on web, so i changed something (actually i dont know where) from localhost to name of my domain. So now i can't open anything. Can you help please?

    You can change it back using one of the methods outlined here: Changing The Site URL. Be sure to read carefully before deciding which one will work best for you.

    1. go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin
    2. select the Database of your site
    3. select wp_option
    4. You should change 2 things here. siteurl and home. You can find these under option_name
    5. Change http://something.com to http://localhost/something

    I changed it to http://localhost/mysite/wordpress, but it still not working. Now i have another problem - web site does not exist or unavaible.

    If you installed wordpress in its own folder in the wampserver web root, then the address is //localhost/wordpress

    If you installed it two folders deep, then the address is //localhost/folder_name/folder_name

    Whatever that path is, that's what your wordpress address needs to be.

    For example: If your site path is
    C:/wamp/www/{your-site-folder} OR C:/xampp/htdocs/{your-site-folder} then your URL will be http://localhost/{your-site-folder}

    but if your site path is C:/wamp/www/{some-folder}/{your-site-folder} OR C:/xampp/htdocs/{some-folder}/{your-site-folder} then your URL will be http://localhost/{some-folder}/{your-site-folder}

    This is my full path - C:\wamp\www\mysite\wordpress. I put http://localhost/mysite/wordpress and still not working. The error message is "localhost is unavaiable".
