[resolved] 404 on both website and wp-admin (8 posts)

    I set-up wordpress yesterday and it worked fine, all the way until this evening - when I think I tinkered with a new theme and BAM. Everything quit. The website and all it's pages is now all 404 pages, as is my domain/wp-admin. ie: Can't see the login page at all.

    What should I do? I tried renaming the directory of my theme folder in the FTP, but that didn't result in anything.

    My domain is : http://www.spydistrict.com

    Many thanks in advance!

    The error is telling that your entire domain does not exist/is no longer reachable from the web on that server. Contact your hosts support group and ask them what's up.

    Right, I'll call them up. Thank you!

    So after contacting them, they said that it is not a problem on their end, and to prove the point, they directed me to type in my URL on anonymouse.org and I could see the site there. Weird!

    I tried clearing my cache, cookies, etc. Still no luck.

    Anybody familiar with such a problem?

    They didn't think it was peculiar that the only way you could reach your domain was by using a proxy service?

    It seems to be up and running okay right now, but it wasn't yesterday.

  6. Your site comes up for me.

    Yeah, it's back. Dunno how, but I shouldn't be complaining then.

    I guess I'll follow up with the hosting guys again just to be sure.

  8. Probably a DNS caching issue. If this is a new domain, that can happen.
