Check if there is a rewrite rule redirecting www.yourdomain.com to yourdomain.com in your web server config EA .htaccess for Apache. If so, once you change base_url to http://www.yourdomain.com, your browser will get looping and non of your pages can be opened.


Go to your


Find table core_config_data

Go to row with path = web/unsecure/base_url

Change its value to whatever it was when running properly.

It always ends with a /


You have to change both the unsecure and secure urls to get it changed. and as TBI Infotech said the url always ends with a "/". So your new url will be "http://www.yourdomain.com/" for both secure and unsecure section.
