Support » Installing WordPress » WordPress Upgrade Killed Access to /wp-admin Pages

  • Resolved heatherphysioc


    I’m not a super savvy WordPress user, so try to dumb down any highly technical responses to little ole’ me. 🙂

    When we went to upgrade the core to the latest version tonight, the front end held steady but the /wp-admin back-end suddenly no longer takes me to the back-end. It looks like it redirects us to this URL, which delivers a 404: /wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2F

    (We automatically back up our content using an online backup tool – but even if we wanted to revert to it we’d have to do it via FTP, which is confusing for this non-dev web team, instead of through the WP back-end.)

  • It seems like you have an issue with the way links are routing. Can you try replacing the .htaccess file in your root directory. This could also be a permissions issue.

    yes this page oping as well

    I don’t know how to read the .htaccess… does this look off?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Looks when you updated it did not update fully you can update manually using ftp
    Replace all files and folders except wp-content folder and wp-config.php file from fresh download and run

    That was it! Thank you all! Very helpful. Much appreciated.

    I have not been on my web page in a while and I recieved 4 plugin updates. I did them and now I can not log into the admin site and if I do get in I get this responce.

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 273 bytes) in /hermes/bosweb/web073/b735/ipg.keyman4uministries/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 567

    I do not work off my computer although I would like to, just have never been able to figure out how and your helps have been no help.

    So the short of it is I Run off of my server. The last time I got an err message like this it took two weeks for it to clear ups and the server can do nothing they told me to contact this site. What do I need to do to correct the isssue and get back into my admn slot. I am locked out.

    Sorry I will start a new page request
