Changed wordpress adress and now site layout is messed up

  1. Wow how very stupid of me, and how amazing how two small changes mess up my site (argh)

    I changed wordpress adress to http://www.pixelsmithstudios.wordpress.com, it should be http://www.pixelsmithstudios.com ( I know that now)

    and changed email adress to [email redacted]

    When I try to log in to http://www.pixelsmithstudios.com/wp-admin I cant log in be cause it redirects to http://www.pixelsmithstudios.wordpress.com which doesnt exist becuase I bought http://www.pixelsmithstudios.com form them as a registered domain name.

    Any ideas? The site looks horrible and I need to fix this.

  2. Hi there, it looks like you moved your site hosting from WordPress.com to Dreamhost a few weeks back -- is that correct?

    Are you saying that when you try to login, you get redirected to your old WordPress.com site? This can happen if you made a mistake in entering a different URL into the Site URL field of your General Settings page.

    You can fix this by editing the Site URL field of the options table in your mySQL database. This is fairly easy to figure out if you can access the database through phpMyAdmin.

    I suggest contacting Dreamhost support so that they can walk you through how to get to phpMyAdmin through your hosting panel.

    As you've found, things work a bit differently on your self-hosted (WordPress.org) site than here on WordPress.com. For future support with your site, I suggest posting on the WordPress.org forums:
