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!

Looks like it works fine for me. Maybe you need to clear your cache.

  • I tried running "sudo apt-get autoclean" and "sudo apt-get autoremove" and it didn't work. Is there any way you could try take a look at my site and help me? I noticed you advertise these services on your own website. If interested, I am going to message you through your site's contact form, so please get back to me there. Thanks
