    I updated/upgraded, and now when I try to access my dashoard (wp-admin), in any way (ie, typing in the site/wp-admin, clicking on dashboard, clicking on edit when at a page or post), i get a 404 page not found error. Help! My webpage is no longer maintanable as a result!

    - 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.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php
