    I somehow deleted or moved my wp-admin folder so i cannot access my website. the page for: http://www.lateenough.com/wp-login.php doesn’t look right and i get a 404-error when i login in.

    i don’t have current backup (because i’m stupid). Is there anything i can do?

  • Download a fresh copy of WordPress, extract the wp-admin folder and upload it to your site using FTP (or use whatever file management application your host provides).

    THANK YOU! but can you tell me EXACTLY where the wp-admin folder goes? I do NOT want to screw this up again.

    It goes in the same directory as the wp-config.php file. Just like it looks when you download WordPress.

    Hi there! I am having the same problem with my WordPress blog. After making some adjustments the other day, I got locked out of the admin panel.

    Now it redirects to a weird login site where I then enter my admin password, press enter and then 404 Not Found -The requested URL /wp-admin does not exist.

    I used the information above in hopes the solution would work. I downloaded a fresh wordpress and copied the wp-admin files over my FTP to the blog, and still no change.

    I need help. What do I do to get the “password required” box from popping up when my site is visited? And how do I get the wp-admin to work again?

    I am not sure what I did in the first place to get these 404 errors. I was trying to be careful, and havent changed much.

    After making some adjustments the other day, I got locked out of the admin panel.

    Did these adjustments involve changing one or both of the two URLs at Settings/General in your admin panel? If so, You’ll have to access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel) and manually change the siteurl and home values back.

    If that did not resolve your issue, please open a new topic.

    I don’t believe I changed anything in the Settings/General section of the admin panel. I did however go into phpMyAdmin on the cpanel, and dont see where I would manually change anything anyway. I still get a redirect followed by a 404 Error.

    I will go ahead and open a new topic.
