    I have the same issue as another member from yesterday but didn't want to drop in on the thread. So, cut and pasted the issue:
    I am very new to WordPress. I thought I would install a WordPress site through Ipage hosting using simple scripts. It seemed like it would be an easy process, but when I click on the admin button I get a directory page 404
    I am a complete newbie please help.

    When you click on the admin button, what address is it trying to take you to?

    Can you get to your initial sample startup wordpress page?

    http://www.yourwebsite.com
    if you installed it in the root directory, you would just go to
    http://www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin

    If it's in a different folder
    http://www.yourwebsite.com/foldername
    then your admin area would be in
    http://www.yourwebsite.com/foldername/wp-admin

    Let me know if this makes sense. :)

    I click on the admin panel link and get:
    404-not found

    The admin panel link is:
    http://www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin

    I wouldn't know if it's in a different folder as I did a "one click" installation through iPage.

    I got the confirmation info from SimpleScripts when I signed up with the link and haven't been able to go anywhere from there.

    Thank you.
