[resolved] Used redirection plugin and now can't access /wp-admin (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I moved my blog from /blog to .co.uk, which worked fine and added a redirect so that it automatically redirected from /blog to .co.uk which was also fine. Then I was trying to change it so that when readers clicked on a link from an RSS feed it would automatically direct to new location and clicked the Regex tick box to cover all instances of /blog (I thought that was possibly the right answer) but now I can't even get onto the login page(wp-admin) for my dashboard, I'm stressing a bit because I can't find ANY answers anywhere. I can access all my files via ftp but I don't know what to change if I can change anything! Help would be very much appreciated!

    Ok, after much stressing, panicking and dead ends of google searches, I simply went into my ftp client, found the folder for the plugins (wp-content then plugins folder) and then deleted the redirection plugin. It was as simple as that, I will now re-install the plugin and start again and NOT press the regex tick box!

    Thanks for all the NON help and I hope this will maybe help someone else in my situation!

    Hi, I'm actually strugglin' with same pb. Beware of loops in your expressions, that sometimes turn to infinite ones...
    I do think this is what I generated, but can't find what...
    In case you can't access /wp-admin/ try /wp-login.php instead. This does the trick for me, to allow access to the admin panel.
