I changed the domain name in my WordPress options menu because I was changing the domain name of my site. Now, however, the page never loads. What can cause this and/or how can I revert it back to the previous domain?

    What about getting into the cPanel's phpMyAdmin and then to the site's database, and then to the wp_options table. Then edit the two option_name's option_values: (1) siteurl, and (2) home? (Details) – Mayeenul Islam May 5 '14 at 5:38

    When moving Wordpress to a new domain it is needed to search and replace all reference of the old domain in the database with the new domain. See Moving Wordpress When Your Domain_Name or URLs Change – cybmeta May 5 '14 at 7:40
