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://18.104.22.168”. 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://22.214.171.124/wp-login.php, redirects me to an error page every time i attempt to login. Also, when I enter http://126.96.36.199 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!
