I cannot access either wp-admin, or wp-login.php on a wordpress site. I'm not getting a 404, or a redirect, it simply says cannot connect in firefox.

I have tried everything relevant on this guide and also this guide, but nothing helps, still the same error.

  • Says The connection to www.caboolturegateway.com.au was interrupted. - Have you contacted your hosting provider?

  • No, as the rest of the site site is working fine, its just the wordpress logins that aren't working so I presumed it was a wordpress issue.

  • That could be due to a number of things: host's web server configuration, your setup, your .htaccess file configuration, etc. Is that site a WP site? Seems like you installed WP into an existing site. If you did, then there is a conflict that prevents WP from running. Did you actually go through the WP installation where you create your admin user and setup the db?

Turned out it was an IP block on just the admin errors of wordpress.


if you want to access the control panel for wordpress just go to your browser and type in this http://localhost/foldername/wp-login.php?
There you are free to go make sure you don't leave out a question mark at the end. Respond if it works for you.
