    I have lost access to my site while I was moving my wordpress site to another directory. I was doing this via wordpress admin>settings>general (see below instruction link). My aim was to move my site from the directory ‘wordpress’ to my root folder. I changed the url in the settings then must have saved and accessed my website. The instructions specifically say don’t access your website. (I just had to many tabs open!!! i think). So now I can’t access my wp-admin to continue working on my website.

    my url is karenbatten.com.au if that helps… what you see is the old dreamweaver site but even if I add wp-admin there is no way in…

    I backed up then did these steps
    Log in to your blog.
    Go to the Administration > Settings > General panel.
    In the box for WordPress address (URI): change the address to the new location of your main WordPress core files.
    In the box for Site address (URL): change the address to the new location, which should match the WordPress (your public site) address (URI).
    Click Save Changes.
    (Do not try to open/view your blog now!) But did this wrong!!!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers Karen
