Login fails, loads /wp-login.php/ (9 posts)

    A site I'm running is having problems. With pretty permalinks enabled, after login I get an "archive not found page", as WP tries to load a page slug "wp-login-php". If I set default permalink structure, WP tries to load http://www.example.com/wp-login.php/ and fails.

    As far as I can tell, this problem just appeared. I had problems before with couple of posts - trying to update the posts would cause a similar problem. However, that happened with just three or four posts, so I didn't mind. Now I mind as I can't even log in to the site.

    I've tried:
    - setting .htaccess to default
    - re-uploading WordPress files
    - disabling mod_sec in .htaccess

    Since I don't think this has anything to do with what I've done - as far as I can tell, there are no plugin or theme changes involved (I'm not the sole admin, so I can't be 100% sure, but I'm 99% sure) - I'm guessing this might be caused by some change in server settings.

    But what could it be? It would help a lot if I could ask the domain guys to ask the host to fix a particular problem - I can't talk with the host support myself. Any ideas?

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    Ah, I forgot to mention I had tried disabling all plugins. That didn't help. I hadn't tried switching the theme but no, that doesn't help either.

    Do you have any published posts on the site?

    We've decided to solve this problem with a backup, so let's see if that helps.
