Wrong domain entered - how can it get corrected?

August 16, 2013 1.3k views
Hi I have mistakenly added .ok instead of .uk for my domain in Wordpress Dashboard --> Settings against URL and URI fields. Would anyone know how I can correct the domain by editing an OS file? I'm on Ubuntu. Thanks.

There are two ways to go about it, depending on your comfort level w/the command line. The easier – but longer, and, arguably, less secure – way is by installing phpMyAdmin (see How to Install and Secure phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 12.04) and editing two table entries in MySQL: (i) siteurl and (ii) home.

On the other hand, you can read about 'the faster' way, here: Changing The Site URL | WordPress Codex.
