Description:

I know the title is confusing on this one, but essentially here is the issue: You are in WordPress under General and you change the Site Home or Site URL and now you can’t access the site.

To Resolve:

  1. Install PHPMyAdmin:

2
3
4
sudo yum install phpmyadmin  

#restart apache  
sudo service httpd restart
  1. Go to the web gui http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin

  2. Go to your wordpress database name on the left column => Then click on the wp_options table => Click on edit next to site url and site home => Edit them and then click go for them to run. Problem solved!
