    That gets me to the login page.

    Ok problem solved. Dreamhost fixed the issue…

    “I am sorry for the trouble here. It appears to been a problem with your
    .htaccess file. I renamed the .htaccess file to .htaccess_OLD to turn it
    off. Them I created a new .htaccess file with the default wordpress
    settings. Everything appears to be working as normal now.”

    What an outstanding service. They fix everything for n00bs like me!

    I hope this helps others with the same problem.

    Hello, i got almost same problem cant login to my admin (dashboard) page and now my website is mess .. giving an error ” URL /index.php was not found on this server”.. after when i reinstall the theme and tried to customize the permalink.. godaddy is host.. please help

    thi audio – Is the /index.php file on your server? You may need to ask GoDaddy for a restore of your files.

    This quick fix to this ongoing problem might work in some cases.

    Browse to your site’s wp-login.php page and enter your user name and password as normal.

    If you suffer from this problem the 404 error will appear.

    Return to your site’s home page and scroll down until you see the edit button.

    If the edit button is there clicking on it will open the admin pages.

    p.s. Although I can now get into my admin pages I still haven’t solved the 404 error appearing even after following all the suggestions for a fix that I’ve read so far.

    My 404 problem started after updating WordPress to the current version.

    I am also suffering from this. I have several WP sites they are all doing the 404 error or looping at the login page…

    As it is across several sites I think maybe my host has changed something?
