How to I change WordPress URL on Ubuntu Droplet, but not lose my log-in
I am using a Droplet, Ubuntu Wordpress Single Install
Install goes great, change my WP admin log in without issues.
I have a domain registered through Google, that correctly points my domain to the droplet server IP address.
When I go to change both URL sites in the WP settings to the http//domain (instead of http://ipaddress. I lose the ability to log into the WP site as an administrator.
I have tried to use the VNC access to log in via phpmyadmin, or via the mysql server however i do not know the mysql root password, and since i did a WP install i can not find it in my message of the day. I can log in as a root into the ubuntu version, creat and add new users in the sudo group but never acess the mysql root
