Sometimes you need to change your website’s url to a new url, it could be for many reasons but we won’t dwell on that right now. The thing is, that sometimes you can find yourself ‘stuck’ outside of your /wp-admin/ area and that’s, how to say, sucks.

One way to do that is to add these 2 lines in wp-config.php:

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://yournewurl.com');
define('WP_HOME', 'http://yournewurl.com');

This code will override the website url that’s defined in your site’s database and make you be able to log into to your admin area again.

Important – after doing that, go to “Settings -> Permalinks” and just click ‘Save’ on the bottom of the settings. That will update all the encoded posts/pages url to the new one.

Good luck!
