How I Fix My Travel Blog’s 404 Error in my WP-Admin Page?
Recently, I have tried fixing my blog’s admin area for security purposes. Without any proper research, I have done my biggest mistake on my blog. This has given my travel blog’s 404 error. It has caused me a lot of frustration and almost decided to reformat my travel blog and start all over again.
What’s the cause of my travel blog’s 404 error?
This error has caused me a lot of trouble. I have not opened my WP-Admin for almost a week(although not really long but frightening.) You might not know that your blog has been hacked, right? In my naive intention, I put literally an “s” to the following:
And then hit the save button, and that ends my WP-Admin Access.
When I found out that I cannot access my admin page anymore, I did take a deep breath and relaxed first. I don’t have to get panic. I know there is a way. So I started to do a research and more research. On the second day, I still pursue on reading more forums from the WordPress itself, from other forums, from blogs and tutorials. But still, no answer that solves my travel blog’s 404 error. I even posted a question in the wrong forum(WordPress.com) 😆
After several frustrating days of not accessing my right as the owner, it’s somewhat depressing. My Godaddy Host and WordPress has given me a lot of non-working answers and even made the situation worst than I thought.
Who had helped me?
As a blogger and very new to WordPress, I did a lot of research on how to manage this blog behind what it impress to my readers. The physical attributes you can see is more than a work I have done for months. One of my best guides is WPBeginner. I have been a fan of their site in which they offer guides, tips, and tricks, discount offers and a lot more to newbies on travel blogs like me. I just didn’t know what it got me when I decided to do a shortcut instead of doing a research first on this move.
I did message them using the form they have on their website. Not really expecting that they would have the time to spend on my naive issue, but hoping. I even looked for their “How to’s” pages.
Suddenly, the day after I sent them the message, I was surprised I got a reply. And then started to follow Jeremy’s instruction for fixing my travel blog’s 404 error.
Everything came back again!
But not all. I still have other issues like deleting the admin myself, not able to see the visual editor and so on. (I am going to tackle this in my next post.)
What did I learn?
Fixing errors on our own is somewhat our pride of doing it ourselves. I can say I am proud of myself but not this time. I learned that we do need help from others and that there are a lot of people having the same issues with me but have not gotten an answer because they rely on building up our pride and boasting things like “I can do that on my own” but no! We definitely need others help in their generous ways. I am very much thankful to Syed and Jeremy for the big help. I would definitely endorse their website as one of the free and best in this industry. Go visit their site if you have encounter issues like me.
This is an awareness of what we seem to oversee behind any other blogs. We are focused on our goals yet were not so sure what else we need to protect our blogs behind.
If you have any issues on your travel blog that have been fixed, please let us know.
