Hi

I have been working on a site.... creating a new site on an existing domain,

www.domain.com/newsite

the aim being once complete I would delete the existing site and upload the contents of /newsite into the root of the site directory...

I tried this, and ended up with the page loading but no css and no images... and also could not get into wp-admin.... eek!

so I put everything back to how it was and figured that I should change something in settings to reflect the url change.....

 so in settings/general I changed both wordpress address and site address to

www.domain.com

clicked save.... then the lights went out!  I have no access to wp-admin any more....

I am able to login to the database if there's any settings there I need to change....

HELP!

after changing the url's as in my initial question, I decided to try uploading the content of the wordpress folder into the root of othe site again.... and fingers crossed so far it is working


just for future reference though, where are the site and wordpress url settings saved?
