It is possible to set the site URL manually in the wp-config.php file to override the database values. This is useful when syncing a database from the live site.
Override Site URL in wp-config.php
Add these two lines to your wp-config.php, where “example.com” is the correct location of your site.
define('WP_HOME','http://example.com'); define('WP_SITEURL','http://example.com');Make sure that you include the http or https at the beginning and don't include a slash at the end. Reference: https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL
