Upgraded to latest WP, but no admin access (11 posts)

    I made a backup of my (very) old WP installation and then deleted the files that are recommended in the install help files.

    When I uploaded the new WP files I was constantly asked to overwrite older files, which I did.

    Now I can see the WP blog with my header and footer. All the posts seem to be there.

    But there is no admin to complete the upgrade. All I see is:
    Not Found
    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.

    Can any help with sorting this problem please? I have very basic tech skills, so you will need to describe ABC what I need to do.

    Thanks,

    Graham

    try http://your-website-name/wp-admin

    and if it still says some error check the permission of the files.The permissions need to be correct

    Using ****/wp-admin is what gives me the message
    Not Found
    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.

    So what files should I be looking for and what are the correct permissions?

    Nope, I can't log in to admin.

    Noticed you signed up on the blog, so that is working.

    So everyone who reads this:

    I've tried every url to log in to admin

    http://fots-blog.com/wp-login.php
    http://fots-blog.com/wp-admin

    There is no access to the back office since the upgrade. so I've done something wrong.

    I should re-phase the last post.

    I can log in to admin, BUT there is nothing there other than the message

    Not found.

    http://fots-blog.com/wp-login.php is accessible only if I go via the meta>>login in the sidebar. But the login has no theme.

    I can log in to admin, BUT there is nothing there other than the message

    Are you saying that the admin dashboard is empty? or do you mean you see the message at the front end that says "Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here." - Try re-uploading the wp-admin folder again.

    Hey thanks for that tip.

    When I looked in the files, there was no wp-admin. Don't know why because I uploaded the complete upgrade folder.

    Anyways, it's there now and I'm into my admin.

    Now I've got new plugins to install and maybe change the theme (if I'm brave enough ;-)
