  • What kind of error do ou get when going to domain.com/wp-admin ??? – Marko Jezernik Jan 31 '17 at 14:05

If you don't have access to your cPanel, or don't know how to make a database change, you can instead add these 2 lines to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com/' );
define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://example.com/' );

You'll of course want to change the urls to your actual urls. Just make sure you don't have the "https" but "http".

This will override your database entries.

Then go into your dashboard under settings and remove the https that you entered, hit save and you have fixed the problem. If you added https via a plugin, you'll want to turn that plugin off.

You can then remove the two lines from your wp-config file and make sure everything still works.

Two items to note.

One. If you're using firefox and i believe Chrome. They may continue to try to load to the SSL version of your site now that they have it it their history. I have not gone into how to fix that here, but a quick google search will tell you how.

The other item. Just changing your db entries may not be the best idea as other it could damage serialized strings.

  • Login to your cpanel and go to php my admin, then find your db and there table wp_options, inside you will see URL of your website,2 fields site url and home url Change it how you like. – TheGcool Jan 31 '17 at 14:24

You can also run this query in mysql to see if you missed any of the URL, and then changed it back from https to http

SELECT * FROM wordpress.wp_options where option_value LIKE "%example.com%";
