I've used your tutorial ( to change my wordpress url to a temp url.

However now I am not able to log in to wordpress. I am receiving two error messages. One directly above the login box stating: ERROR: Cookies are blocked due to unexpected output. For help, please see this documentation or try the support forums.

I have deleted all cookies and cache and have insured that cookies are allowed for wordpress.

The the other error message is showing up at the top of the page:

define('WP_HOME','*******'); define('WP_SITEURL','*******');
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/*****/public_html/wp-config.php:3) in /home/******/public_html/wp-login.php on line 414
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/******/public_html/wp-config.php:3) in /home/******/public_html/wp-login.php on line 426

(I've removed my cpanel username and replaced it with ******, not sure if that is something one should make public.) I didn't change anything file manager->wp.config.php other than those two lines states in the temp url guide.

I would appreciate any help to clear this up.

Thanks, Vanessa

Hi Vanessa,

Thank you for your question. I tested the front end of your Wordpress site on your Temp URL, and it seems to work successfully.

Unfortunately, without your username and password I cannot test/replicate the dashboard login errors.

I recommend contacting Live Tech Support, so you can provide account specific information, and they can test further.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
