Support » Fixing WordPress » Error 404 – Page Not Found

  • Hi all,

    I have recently installed wordpress and got everything running fine, However when i created the site i created it in a directory of its on ( wordpress)

    Once i got everything running fine i did as said and copied the index.php and otherfiles i was told to and edited as needed.

    Now the site has been running fine for a few days but last night i noticed that if you load the website it loads under, you can go to any of the menu pages and they work fineand navigate between them fine.

    However if you click on the HOME link it takes you to and gives a Error 404 – Page Not Found

    Does anyone know why or if i can change the HOME settings to point to just ???

  • Yes, you need to update the home and site url appropriately. Here’s a link to the codex explaining how to do this:

    now i have totaly cocked everything up 🙁

    does your hosting solution provide support?

    Hmmm….. my problem is similar. I was editing my pages – all was fine. I see it was time to install the upgrade, so I clicked to let it install. The install failed – not sure why – but it failed. So now I’m back to my home page. Clicked “admin log in” link – which brought me to the wp-admin page. I entered my username & pw, but then it says “this page cannot be found.” My page is in tact but I cannot log in. What’s going on?!?!

    Please and thanks!

    update: also, this is really weird – when I click on my log-in link, it gives me a re-direct with % in the address bar….

    thanks esmi,

    this is what i get now 🙁

    Esmi, apparently I didn’t understand protocol; it was my understanding that we are not supposed to begin a new topic when one of very similar situation is already running. I humbly apologize and will start a new thread. Thanks for putting me on track.
