WordPress Site Address Reset

If you have changed your site address in the settings and possibly crashed your site, you can fix this in cPanel. It may be that you had a typo or perhaps an SSL that is not set up correctly. If you added “s” to the address like below, the site will crash if it is not set up correctly for SSL.

Site changed from http to https

To recover your site by fixing the above changes, log into your cPanel for the site. Once there, open “phpMyAdmin.” Open the database for your site. If there is more than one database you may have to go into each one until you find the one associated with the site you made changes to. Open the “wp_options” inside of that. You should see the “siteurl” and can change it back by choosing to edit it. Save and it should be back online.
