I accidentally changed my wordpress website url from what it was to the url which is same as my site url and after then I am not able to login into my admin it shows error of page not found(while using my original wordpress site url) and if I try to login through my site url it shows me redirected you too many times.

Please help me! I tried accesing file through ftp but got no luck in that, also tried to go to wp-login.php but in that also page not found error is coming. and also tried deleting cookies.Tried disabling plugins and themes from filezilla but nothing is working.

If you don't have database access for some reason, you can also use

// use these in your wp-config.php
define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://example.com' );
define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com' );


// use these in your functions.php
update_option( 'siteurl', 'http://example.com' );
update_option( 'home', 'http://example.com' );

to regain access to your site. You can read more about changing the site urls from the codex, Changing The Site URL


I you accidentally changed the site url you can change it back manually, via your database manager (usually phpmyadmin): look at the wp_options table and search for home and siteurl options and edit them back to the original value (your website url).
