Can't Login to my wordpress? Page not found. (16 posts)

    I recently changed to a new host (From iPage to Fatcow) and now my wordpress seems to be broken!

    I copied over all of the files from FTP, from the old one to the new one.

    I exported the contents of the old MySQL database, made a new database on Fatcow (had to change the username to lowercase as Fatcow wouldn't let me use caps) and imported all the contents into that database.

    I then updated wp-config.php to the new username of the database (keeping the database name and password the same because I did) and the new database host, being Fatcow.

    My website is up and running, thought now I can't login. When I go to http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin it redirects to me http://www.mysite.com/wordpress/wp-login.php and then says page not found.

    Funny thing is, a day after I moved the host, the login worked fine because I logged in and made a new post, and now I've checked it today and it's not working.

    I've tried recreating the database, that didn't work.
    I also redownloaded wordpress, uploaded via FTP and overwrited all the files, and that still didn't fix.

    Can anybody help me please? I don't want to start from scratch. Thank you!

    P.S. My site is http://www.tomlonghurst.com

    I no longer have access to my wp-admin. I get the following message:


    I recently installed the plugin WP Better SECURITY, a possible cause. However, I disabled all plugins but without success.

    Can you help me?

    CMc2, your website seems to work fine :)

    I contacted FatCow support and they said this:
    I've corrected siteurl and home entry and now admin page http://www.tomlonghurst.com/wordpress/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tomlonghurst.com%2Fwordpress%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1 is loading fine.

    Though for me my website is more broke. My website doesn't even load at all, my homepage is a blank page with 0
    And wp-admin, chrome says is a broken link?

  9. @tomhurst the best way to fix this is to login to your Control panel and get to the phpmyadmin.

    Once there, go to your database and go to the wp_options table.
    Look for the siteurl and then the home. Make sure that both are set to http://www.tomlonghurst.com

    I think that whoever "fixed"your site at Fatcow support messed something up.

    This may or may not help. My problem was that for no apparent reason I could not log in. What I noticed was that in trying to fix it I first backed up the whole site but noticed that wp-login.php failed both in Filezilla and through c-panel to download.

    As I result I simply re uploaded an old wp-login.php that I had and Bobs your uncle. Hope that helps someone else cause I nearly died when I got the error originally ... :)
