Configuring the Server Base URL - How to undo a mistake?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring the Server Base URL

I don't see any way to undo a mistake in these instructions.  Once I change the Server Base URL, how do I undo this change if a mistake was made?

For example: The current base URL is and we are planning on changing it to . However, if there is a problem getting to that new URL, how do we fix the problem?

I assume the same "undo" steps would apply if the Base URL was typo'd, correct?

Shouldn't actually matter that much - the base url is important, but getting it wrong does not stop Confluence being accessible.  You can still use the admin functions, including "change base url" by connecting to it on the actual url it is running on.

Hey Edcor,

If you change the server base url you can "undo" that directly in the database. You can check this documentation for it. That's the only possible way to change the information instead using the UI.

Nevertheless, the port information and the https you can change they directly in the server.xml file.
