WordPress fix Need to revert from https URL to http URL

    Need to revert from https URL to http URL, by doofydafus

    I had been trying to apply SSL to my website. Sadly, I updated my site’s URL from http://itsmagicpeter.com to https://itsmagicpeter.com before installing the certificate. Stupid, I know. Now, my site cannot be reached. I therefore need to revert that change, but am unable to launch the WordPress dashboard as it generates the same error as my website: This site can’t be reached. itsmagicpeter.com took too long to respond.

    So I’m at Catch-22. I need to get to the dashboard to change my site’s URL from https to http, but I can’t launch the dashboard because my site’s URL has been set to https rather than http. My ISP has tried restoring back-ups to revert the change, to no effect. I am unable to edit the files affected, as those files are inaccessible via FTP (I’m told they are the wp_options files, but that may be a red herring). So I am at a loss. Any suggestions would be VERY welcome.

    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards
