Wordpress: I have accidentally set the domain name to "Localhost" - How do I change it back again.

Dear Experts,
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/wordpress?

I have tried adding these two lines to the wp-config.php file:  

define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'filipinofutures.com');

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.
