    Hello-
    I'm relatively new to the wordpress format. Somehow I managed to disable my ability to access my control panel in wordpress. Now when I enter my domain name and try to go to the admin section it takes me to a host gator "page not found"...Is this a wordpress problem or a host gator problem?

    Did you move this site after it was installed?

    Im not sure what I did....i must have changed a corresponding address somewhere...but now Im completely locked out and dont have the ability to change anything. Does anyone know how to get to the admin area without the admin login?

    It looks like you have your install set to http://cliffalmond.com/welcome-to-the…f-almond-music and not http://cliffalmond.com/
    Because you're blocked from your admin CP, you'll need to edit the values in the database directly. Do you know how to do that? If not, you may have to find somebody to do it for you.

    there are other methods on this page which don't involve editing the database directly.

    Thanks...I did read it. Im still unclear as to how to get into the system...there are a few different choices...(I think its the first one...) however im not sure exactly how that should look in my browser...in other words should I be typing my address before those
    lines?
    example:

    ...cliffalmond.com/define('WP_HOME','http://example.com'); ???

    any advice would be appreciated.

    you should be editing the php files. you'll need to login with your host's file manager or use an FTP client.
