How to Activate Temporary URL using WordPress:

If you are using WordPress, you need to update the wp-config.php file with the temporary server URL. Here's how:

  • Access your website's files using an FTP client or a file manager in cPanel.

  • Locate the wp-config.php file in the root directory of your WordPress installation.

  • Open the wp-config.php file in a text editor.

  • Look for the following lines in the file: around line 60 at the end of the last define(); line of code.
  • Replace yourdomain.com with the temporary URL you noted earlier, like this:

define('WP_SITEURL', 'https://yourhostingservername.com/~cpanelusername'); 

define('WP_HOME', 'https://yourhostingservername.com/~cpanelusername');om/~cpanelusername');

  • Save the changes to the wp-config.php file.


Please remember to change this once you go live with your website.
