Changing The Site URL

On the Settings->General screen in a single site installation of WordPress, there are two fields named “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”. They are important settings, since they control where WordPress thinks your site is located. They control the display of the URL in the admin section of your page, as well as the front end, and are used throughout the WordPress code.

  • The “Site Address (URL)” setting is the address you want people to type in their browser to reach your WordPress blog.
  • The “WordPress Address (URL)” setting is the address where your WordPress core files reside.

Note: Both settings should include the http:// part and should not have a slash “/” at the end.

Every once in a while, somebody finds a need to manually change (or fix) these settings. Usually this happens when they change one or both and discover that their site no longer works properly. This can leave the user with no easily discoverable way to correct the problem. This article tells you how to change these settings directly.

Additional information is presented here for the case where you are moving WordPress from one site to another, as this will also require changing the site URL. You should not attempt to use this additional information if you’re only attempting to correct a “broken” site.

I didn’t receive the confirmation email.
If you don’t get the confirmation email within one or two hours, please check your spam folder. If it’s not there, repeat the steps from the beginning, as sometimes emails go astray.

I checked my spam folder and the confirmation email is not there.

I’m on the Delete Site page, but I see a message that the site can’t be deleted.
You will not be able to delete your site if you’ve purchased a custom domain for it. This is because you need to keep the WordPress.com site active in order to access the domain manager.If you do not want to use your site any more, you can:

Once the custom domain upgrade is removed from your site, you can return to Tools → Delete Site and start again.
