Force WordPress site URL

Last Revised: October 2, 2021

One of the most common mistakes of an admin user in the WordPress admin panel is to change the URLs that appear on the first setup screen: the addresses of the main page of the site.

To prevent anyone, deliberately or mistakenly, from making a change in the addresses and therefore the site stops working, it is best to block those addresses from the configuration file [wp-config.php]. To do this we will add two lines:

define('WP_SITEURL', '');
define('WP_HOME', '');

With this you get the URLs blocked from the panel and you can not produce unwanted changes that prevent access to the site.
