I am trying to restore a Wordpress Web site from a set of backup files that I created back in 2010. I now remember that I edited the files to work on my laptop rather than my domain name:
I am pretty sure that when I did the edits on my laptop I was able to upload the site to my server and make it work with some minimal edits back in 2010.
When I did the restore this week I was able to see a partially restored version of my Web site but if I click on one of the pages in menu system I get this type of URL popping up:
This displays a blank page. If I manually edit this URL to delete "localhost" and insert the domain name like this:
Then I can see the appropriate Web page.
Can anyone tell me how to globally change the domain URL back to filipinofutures.com or filipinofuturers.com/wordp
I have tried adding these two lines to the wp-config.php file:
define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://filipinofutures.com/wordpress'
I tried them in separate attempts but nothing changed. Is there a MySQL table entry I can edit? Is there a different line I can insert into wp-config.php? I am running Wordpress 3.0.
