Hi I'm hoping that someone can help me. I have taken over a WordPress site for a Scout group where I help out. Another leader set up the wordpress site with a temporary URL of beacon-scouts.com however the Scout Group literature and minibus has the existing url of 20thwalsallscouts.org.uk.
They say a little knowledge is dangerous and in this case it's true. I set up a framed page forwarding service from the 20thwalsallscouts.org.uk domain host which worked fine, then I tried to be too clever and tried to change the url displayed on the wordpress site. Stupidly I changed both URL's in the general settings to be 20thWalsallScouts.org.uk, and ever since, I have been stuck in a perpetual loop. I can't log in to beacon-scouts.com/wp-admin, it just takes me to a temporary page on the 20thwalsallscouts.org.uk page. If I type beacon-scouts.com/wp-login.php, the login dialogue box appears, but as soon as I enter my user id and password and hit login, it takes me to the temporary page for 20thwalsallscouts.org.uk.
Unfortunately the guy who set up the original blog and beacon-scouts.com is off on long term sick and can't be contacted.
I have read about connecting to the database via phpMyAdmin or via FTP, but understand that WordPress.com blogs don't accept ftp connections.
If anyone out there can suggest a solution to this, I'd love to hear from you as I'm tearing my hair out at the moment.
