    check to make sure your wp-login.php file is still on your site/server. And if it is, temporarily rename your .htaccess in the root of your website to see if that works.

  • Yes, it is available in file manager. Jun 22 at 8:16
  • @PaulG. Thanks, I have renamed the .htacess file and it is working now, But what to do with the .htacess file now? Jun 22 at 8:19
  • Make a copy of it somewhere safe, just in case you find something else isn't working, and delete it. Then go to WP Settings > Permalinks > Save.

The problem was 1 of 2 things:

Either the wp-login.php file wasn't present, or the permalinks structure was corrupt or incorrectly setup in the .htaccess. The solution then is 1 of the following:

  1. Ensure the file wp-login.php file is present on the site. If not, download the WordPress zip from wordpress.org for your WP version and place it there.
  2. temporarily rename the .htaccess file to remove its effect. If this works, log into your WordPress site, goto Settings > Permalinks and then Save.

In this case it was .htaccess which needed rebuilt.
