    I reversed the “Home URLs” of two WordPress websites, now they’re unaccessible, by wilberforcesociety

    Hi everyone,

    I am the person in charge of the website for a University Society I am part of, the Wilberforce Society.
    We have a main website (https://thewilberforcesociety.co.uk), and we have been creating a new design for it on another website (https://thewilberforcesociety.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk).
    Both websites work with WordPress (I’m afraid I don’t know the WordPress version of each, and I’m unable to check!).

    Now, I wanted to essentially move the “gridhosted” website to become the main one. I thus made the silly mistake of changing the URLs in the General Settings part of the Admin panel, by changing the address of the ‘gridhosted’ website to https://thewilberforcesociety.co.uk, and vice versa on the admin panel of the “normal” website, by changing the address to https://thewilberforcesociety.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk. Now, the home pages of both websites are inaccessible; but more importantly, I am completely unable to log into the admin panels of either of the websites. What can I do?

    The website is still accessible through any of its other pages (for example, https://thewilberforcesociety.co.uk/about).

    I tried to see if I could repair that mistake by going through the WordPress php files that are on the hosting service we are using, but I couldn’t find anything to do on there (as, maybe wrongly, I’m assuming that this information will be stored in a SQL database and not on the php files themselves?).

    I would appreciate it a lot if someone could help me out. If I need to give more information, please tell me. It’d be great if I could reverse this mistake and access both admin panels once again, and it would be even better if someone could tell me how to migrate the “gridhosted” website to become the normal as well!

    Thank you in advance!
