Question

Accidentally locked myself out of WordPress site, please help! General Settings page

Hi there, noob here who doesn’t know what they’re doing. I went into WordPress Dashboard --> General Settings and saw the fields “WordPress Address” and “Site Address” were filled with my IP address “http://104.236.88.248”. I replaced both fields with “cultureontrial.com” which apparently seems to have locked me out of my site.

Now the URL cultureontrial.com won’t work, I cannot access the login page from there, and the only login page that works, http://104.236.88.248/wp-login.php, redirects me to an error page every time i attempt to login. Also, when I enter http://104.236.88.248 my theme is deprecated, which it wasn’t before I made the change on the General Settings page.

Is there any way I can regain access to the backend of my site and change the General Settings page back to the way it was?? Please help!
