Ok, heres what happened. I read through the forums and found and article to change the default path for my website.
Basically from http://www.mysite.com/magento, to http://www.mysite.com.
Then followed the additional instructions to change the url to access my admin page. I changed the admin page to http://www.mysite.com/admin.
After I made the changed I moved my magento folder by ftp and I can access my website.
Instead of my admin site being http://www.mysite.com/admin. It is at http://www.mysite.com/index.php/admin for some odd reason?
This would be ok, except this login page does not contain the original magento graphic in the background, nor the normal formatting assocaited with the page. When I enter my login information I get an error saying ‘access denied’.
I am so desperate to get my admin back so I can continue on my site. I hope someone out there can help me out. Thanks in advance for your help.
