    I installed a new theme. Now, I can't log back in to change it back. I get this message when I attempt to login:

    Server error
    The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.medicalalarmfl.com/wp-admin/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    I checked my other wordpress sites to make sure it had nothing to do with my hosting company.

    Please advise.

    Does this happen when you click on the login button?

    Yes. I can access the login page, but when I click "login" it fails.

    Using ftp or using the file manager at your hosted account, rename the new theme. WordPress then should open with the default theme.
