Hi I am in desperate need of help. I've finished my WordPress site but I can't access it and I'm not sure how to get it back.
Hi guys, I made a massive rookie mistake (which I am). And I need a fix ASAP. I had completed my WordPress website and wanted to add the domain to it so it didn’t show the IP address but I went into WordPress - General Settings and changed the
WordPress Address (URL) - From the IP address to my domain name
Site Address (URL) - From the IP address to my domain name
Now it just says ‘This site cannot be reached’ on both the IP and the domain.
I know it was stupid, if I install an SSL certificate, will the site load? Or is it lost hope because I don’t know how to edit the wp-config.php file.
