Unable to access WordPress after changing Synology IP

Unread post by acferraz » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:38 pm

I started to use WordPress recently with my Synology and so far I only access it from my computer (no outside access).
My problem is:
I just got a new router, which changed the IP address for my Synology.
I can access Synology DSM with no problem in the new address, but when I click to open WordPress, it goes to the old IP and doesn't find anything.
I have tried to type in the address bar the new IP followed by /wordpress but it also, for some reason, goes to the old IP.
I have even uninstalled WordPress and re-installed, but I am still having the same problem. WordPress is always going to the old IP address.

Does anyone knows how I change this configuration in WordPress so I can direct it to the right place?
Many thanks in advance!

I got this solved.
I had to put in the address bar the IP address followed by /wordpress/wp-admin that prompted me to input my WordPress username and password.
I then noticed that inside WordPress, under Settings>General in Site URL I had the address for the old IP. I tried to delete this and leave it blank but it won't let me (when I click save it says that is not a valid address)
Anyway, I regain access to my WP blog.
