Wordpress site went missing and CSS effect doesn't work ?

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help me in accessing the internal Wordpress blog that I've deployed as VM

Because when I type the servername, it only displayed the plain HTML without the CSS effects and then when i try to go to the admin page it failed :-| as well.

However when i go to servername/phpmyadmin all is working well and the apache server is listening on port 80

ping works both way and no problem.

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

It seems that either blog URL or site URL is set to wrong URL. You can refer the following URL to change it:


Also make sure that you have set correct "Document root" for your localhost (http://servername).

The requested URL /wordpress/ was not found on this server.

It should be set from your Apache configuration file httpd.conf.

You will have to change the site url from phpmyadmin as shown in the screenshot attached. Change it to your http://yourservername/pathtowordpress . The table name is wp_options and the row is second .  Wordpress

ah... i was under the impression that this is because of the DNS issue as some people suggested.
but I'll check that out any way.
THanks guys.

@Kailashaghera: my httpd.conf is currently empty,

ok, ping from both end is working fine but SSH from my laptop to this wordpress VM it reached timeout eventhough port 22 is actively listening.

The best way to do this, is to go into the phpmyadmin and click export, which will pop on all the sql data....
copy the sql data to textedit do a find and replace of the following:


then upload to your new host


This is the most effective , and quick way to transfer sql data from wordpress to wordpress

There are more urls needing change , then the one in the options table. Find and replace would make sure you change all of then
