I was able to add WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) manually and access the local site again. What I did was add following code segments to following files.

  1. wp-config.php

  2. Functions.php

I have added following code just after opening of

   update_option('siteurl', 'http://www.local.abc.com' );
   update_option('home', 'http://www.local.abc.com' );

After that I have refresh site and it worked fine.

  • this did not work for me at all. it returns a 502 gateway error if i try to access my site at index Commented Sep 29, 2017 at 5:47
