    I uploaded the files, was able to log in I even received a confirmation email for my log in.

    I tried to make a simple edit to the layout and name of it and it went insane when I tried to click Save. Now I have a 404 Error, and I can't log in. When I tried it says it has no user name on file.

    I don't understand what to do next.

    If I go to: http://cupcakecarousel.net/wordpress/
    Then try the log in link at the bottom this is where it takes you:

    Sincerely appreciate all help!

    Thank you, I was able to get to that log in page successfully but then when I log in I am still receiving a 404 error:

    Still not sure why, I have the correct log in and password.

  6. Look at http://cupcakecarousel.net/wordpress/wp-login.php

    Now look at, say http://halfelf.org/wp-login.php

    Notice how mine is nicely formatted?

    You've got some missing files.

    1) Manually re-upload the WP core files.
    2) If that doesn't work, rename your plugins folder to old-plugins

    (To whomever tagged this for the mods - that tag is for reporting spam, alerting us to when people post their private information, and other really important stuff ;) Don't abuse the hotline.)

    Thank you Ipstenu, I went in and deleted all of the files. Then tried reloading them to the FTP site, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    I'm not sure I understand your second point of renaming my plugins folder. Should I make a new folder in my FTP site and try reloading?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question I am new to all of this.

    Is there any way to completely delete everything and start again? like delete my previous log in and password?

    I just don't understand and I'm frustrated. I finally got everything loaded then I go to change something ridiculous like the name of the tag for the blog and it just randomly malfunctions and I can no longer log in or do anything. I never even touched the files after I was able to log in. I thought this was supposed to be relatively simple?
