  • tawniii


    I can not figure out why I am getting a 404 error on the login. The basic site is up and running but I try to login and I get the 404. I installed via FTP. my database was fine and everything installed correctly but now I get the 404 for login. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Can you confirm that the file /wp-admin/login.php exists on your server? Try amanual upgrade of WordPress. Follow the below procedure:

    1. Download the latest version of WordPress from here

    2. Make a backup of all your WordPress files and MySQL database.

    3. Delete the directories wp-admin and wp-includes.

    4. Delete all files from the root of your website starting with “wp-” except the wp-config.php file.

    5. Extract the downloaded version of WordPress and upload all files and directories except the wp-content directory and the wp-config.php file.

    6. To perform the upgrade, navigate to http://yoursitename/wp-admin/upgrade.php and follow the on screen steps.

    That should do the trick.
