Renamed directory now Admin not working (4 posts)

    I changed the name of my directory yesterday and now I cannot access the admin. It basically gives me a blank page no errors nothing.
    Prior to renaming I did change the permalinks and urls. I can access the site and all the content fine but not the admin. Oh it did give me the login window and I logged in then it went blank after that.
    Can anyone tell me what is wrong?

    Thank you

    Update I just checked and now I cannot access the rest of the site. It is directing to another file. Where can I edit the permalinks manually?

    if you mean one of the folders, change the name back to what it was...

    why would you do this? what are you trying to achieve?

    I changed the name of the entire directory.
    I did this because it needed to be a generic name not the entire name of the site. Which is how the owner set it up.

    I just checked the htaccess file and it is pointing in the proper direction.
