[resolved] WordPress log-in problem. (6 posts)

    I can not log-in to my admin area (for writing/editing etc.). When I try to log-in to admin area, i get the message: 404 Not Found
    Nothing found for Wp-admin
    It shows a sitemap instead of admin area.
    It accepts the username and password (as I can see there are 2 comments pending, 4 pdates available etc.)
    Another thing I want to mention. Before the problem started I scheduled a few posts, which are going live without normally any problem.
    How can I log-in to admin area without loosing any data.
    My hosting provider says to install the wordpress again, can it be done without loosing any data. Can anyone help me.

    Do you know what version of WordPress you were running? Can you make a quick backup of the database just in case? It sounds like you're missing an important file or two, possibly in the wp-admin folder. If you know what version of wordpress you were using you can download a copy of it and then try uploading just the /wp-admin/ and see if that helps.

    Backup the database and your theme files first.

    Could you please take a look at http://www.A-1Locksmith.com/blog/wp-admin and maybe tell me why my wp-admin page is no longer available? 2 days ago I was in the admin panel and I changed the site url from http://www.A-1Locksmith.com/blog/wp-admin to http://www.A-1Locksmith.com/wp-admin and instantaneously the admin panel went down. I haven't been able to login since.

    ANY advice would be great.

    Do you mind sharing with me how you solved the problem? I seem to be having a very similar problem and can't figure it out. I've been trying to resolve now for 2 days. ugh!
