I was trying to change my backend URL. So i changed it in Stores -> Configuration -> Base URL To the actual site URL.

Now i am no longer able to access the backend anymore.

All i get is

Whoops, our bad... The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why. If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct. If you clicked on a link to get here, the link is outdated.

Is there any way to fix this?

  • Thanks guys, that did it. Lesson learned :)

you need to access your database to fix the issue.

Go to Phpmyadmin

Go to your database.

Find table core_config_data

find field name with web/unsecure/base_url and web/secure/base_url and replace value with your own url.

Now Clear Var folder from root.

Check again.


you have to go to database to fix the issue.

Go to Phpmyadmin

1)Open your phpmyadmin.

2)Find table core_config_data

3)Search for the field name web/unsecure/base_url

4)Add your URL which is the actual site URL.


Open your Database and click in SQL tab and run this query ::

SELECT * FROM `core_config_data` WHERE `path` LIKE '%base_url%'

And update your URL
