    Please help,

    I have installed a new blog and just set it up.

    Then I added a couple security plugins and they had recommendation for removing
    admin and backend.

    I did this and now I am unable to log in

    I tried these links in two different browsers

    http://tinyurl.com/ao8r24z

    http://yourdomain/wp-login.php

    http://yourdomain/wp-admin/

    (with my domain name) http://tinyurl.com/ao8r24z

    and all I am getting is

    Not Found
    Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help

    Even clicking on the Meta link in the widget will bring up the error message.

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you.

    Reverse all of the changes recommended by these plugins and delete them.

    Do you change your login page address?

    For example: from /wp-admin to /login-example

    Do you give the security plugins the access to change the .htaccess? If yes look in your .htaccess file for or post it here, without domain specific details.

    Thank you for responding!

    It was the plugin Wp-Better WordPress security.

    I did uninstall this plugin from within the Cpanel, since I was unable to log into WordPress.

    However the uninstall did not resolve the problem.

    Oops,now I see,

    Espiat you are correct, better wordpress security made a ton of changes to my .htaccess.

    I am not sure if you want me to post this whole file here?

    It is fairly long!

    Please let me know.
    Thanks
