  • Are you using a security plugin like Ithemes security? This sounds like a plugin misconfiguration. If you have access to Cpanel file manager, you need to look in wp-content/plugins and remove (or move) any plugins that might be causing this problem.

    Please if you don’t mind tell me how to find that out. I literally can’t get into anything to even look. I don’t know what Cpanel file manager is. Unfortunately a friend set up the page on but I no longer have access to her help. I’m traveling the world by bicycle and don’t have the knowledge I need. Any step by step info you can tell me would be really helpful.

    You need to start by going to – from there you need to login using the username and password from hostgator.

    Once you have logged in, look for file manager. This should take you to the public_html folder of your website. From there, click on wp-content, and then plugins.

    Before you do anything else, please post a list of the plugins folders that are in that main plugin folder. I can probably tell you from that what the problem plugin is.

    okay, I followed your directions and here is the list of items under plugins:















    Now what?



    You are using iThemes Security (better-wp-security). Maybe ask your question here:

    So you’re saying the problem is in Ithemes Security?
    As I said, I’m a luddite, so no idea what I’m doing here. I’ll post my question there.
    But what is the problem?



    It has a feature that “hides” or renames your login / admin page. It’s a great feature, but can be tricky sometimes if not configured correctly 🙂
