Hacked. Can't Find wp-admin.php File (4 posts)

    My website was hacked, and part of the instructions on this page involves changing the keys in the wp-admin.php file.

    I don't see that file when I log into the admin panel for this site.

    Where are they keys located then, being that I don't have (or see) this file?

  2. There is no wp-admin.php file, you have to update wp-config.php instead.

    As that link explains, please have a backup just in case.

    wp-config.php is what I meant to say. I don't see one.

  4. The wp-config.php file can be in the root of your WordPress installation or it can be one directory level below that so look there too.
