Support » Fixing WordPress » 404 error message when logging into wpadmin

  • Resolved poppet


    Hi Everyone,

    Last week I signed up to Bluehost and started to work on my very first wordpress website. Today I have tried to log into back into wpadmin to continue designing, but I am only coming up against the following message.

    Not Found
    The requested URL was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I have googled, YouTubed, tried to start completely again, with no sign of hope. I am not techie AT ALL, very much a designer, and I feel this is a very simple problem to someone in the know. I just wish that person was me. I have spent 4 hours trying to tackle this. One of the solutions mentioned changing my wp_options, but I do not even this I have Tt5_options page.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    I would first recommend you to take the backup of complete site and database.

    Further it seems the problem is with the Site URL, you website URL is whereas you are trying to access the Admin Panel via the Temporary URL provided by Bluehost.

    As per my understanding the problem is not major and can be handled without your data being lost.

    If you are technical you can understand this article and make some changes.

    Changing The Site URL

    If not, I would suggest you take help from some technical person to help you sort this out.

    Hope this helps.

    The biggest problem was that I didnt know what the problem was. But even with my non-existent techie skills, I have managed to change the name and log-in.

    Thank you so much!

    Happy to help Poppet!

    Thank you!
