Get 404 message when I try to log-in (3 posts)

    Very frustrated. I'm unable to log-in to my admin area to make changes and get a 404 message when using my usual username and password.

    Followed instructions elsewhere in the forums but get the same 404.

    Can anyone help?

    -temporarily rename / delete the .htaccess to see if that resoves the issue.

    -if not, try switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific issue?

    If you don't have access to your admin area, then access your server via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Thanks for the advice - I'll try that. Now you've mentioned the FTP/SFTP solution it makes me think this is related to the recent GoDaddy DoS hack which was in the news. Do you think that's the case?

    At moment I can't even log-in to make any changes (i.e. theme) because of the 404 message.
