one of my site's wp-admin is not accesible but the site front part is loading. This happens after i accessed the site from my new server second time. at first nothing happens and i can logg into dashboard. then after i logged out and second time try to login this error happens. when accessing the mysite.com/wp-admin the page shows

The page isn't redirecting properly.Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

in the public_html/error_log :

PHP Warning:  require(/home/mysite/public_html/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php) [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/mysite/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 76
PHP Fatal error:  require() [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: Failed opening required '/home/mysite/public_html/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mysite/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 76

cpanel error_log shows:

Permission denied: /home/mysite/public_html/wp-admin/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable

the htaccess have 644 permission. but i changed it into 775 and 755 and checked. the same happens. what could be the reason? how to solve this?

there is a missing.. a file which is required wordpress is missing so admin is not working properly to fix it just replace your wp-include folder with the exact version you have or there could be some permission issue just check all file has 775 as the permission
