You can log in to your phpMyAdmin and change the values "siteurl" and "home" in the database table wp_options.


Besides what Castiblanco said, you should be able to solve this another way.

Download your wp-config.php and add those lines

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

These values override the ones in the database. You should be able to log back in and change it back.

  • I tried this but i still can't log in. I'm only supposed to change the example.com to my site right?

  • @ann Sorry, had to go. Did you change anything to make it work? If you don't mind, you can mark either of the answers as accepted
