    Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

    front end of the website is in working state, i tried to access the back-end using this url:

    first it redirects to the same error page, bt when i accessed the front-end it was logged in.
    Now the problem is im logged-in as admin but all the back-end pages (dashboard, edit page, etc etc) are showing error 404

    The site was functioning well, and as far as i remember i didnt made any change in the template since 1 month.
    Kindly help me solve this issue, its urgent, i have to update my client

    have you tried:
    -deactivating ALL plugins (yes, all) temporarily to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s). If you can’t get into your admin dashboard, try deactivating via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides. If applicible, also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old.
    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive).

    t-p: i tried deactivating all the plugins, but it makes no change. I still cannot access admin dashboard

    i also changed the name of plugin directory, there is no mu-plugin directory in this case
