The Dreaded 404 Error for New Website
Hi guys! I had a lot of help from a previous question in the installation board but my troubles are an ongoing theme I guess.
My problem is that my website http://www.prairiepariah.com is giving me the ol’ “404 Not Found” deal when I try to log into the wp-admin.php page.
Yesterday I had my website working. After fighting forever with it for no apparent reason it started working and I was able to finally finish installing wordpress and get my website somewhat up and running (after four days of trying). All I got to do was change the header image and background colour in the customize setting and then bam, “404 Not Found” strikes again.
I’m using DreamHost and FireFTP and everything seemed to be working just fine (for a few minutes anyways) until it randomly stopped working. Why would it do that?
I put it temporarily to “park” yesterday and shortly after had this happen. I took it off park today. I’ve read some other pages on 404 errors and some people say that with DreamHost you need to be patient and just give it time to process. This happened yesterday and it’s still not working. Does DreamHost or WordPress always do this kind of thing? I’m thinking I must have done something wrong but I don’t know what.
I’ve also been mindful on clearing cookies and deleting the cache, closing everything and restarting etc.
I also read about some people needing to disable plugins (found here: http://perishablepress.com/quickly-disable-or-enable-all-wordpress-plugins-via-the-database/ ) although this confused me. Do I do this thought DreamHost or FireFTP or what? Do I even need to do this? I don’t know. I should have mentioned that I’m new at this.
Sorry if this a tired problem, but a nagging one since there are a lot on the subject. I’ve browsed through them on the forum but it’s hard to tell since most problems seem unique to the individual. I would love your help because I don’t know where else to turn. I have no friends who understand websites and wasn’t taught this stuff in my design classes.
