’m getting a 404 on admin.

Everything was working okay before a problem with my webserver. Hosting company restored a backup copy of files, and I can access the frontend, but not the backend.

When I go to index.php/admin I get: 404 error: Page not found.

I’m at a complete loss on how to fix this. Only my admin area is affected.

I have deleted all the files from the server, and replaced them using the original ZIP file. I then did an installation using the same database, and I get exactly the same 404 error in admin.

Has anybody got any ideas why this is happening?
Can anyone tell me what should i do ?

Does /admin without the index.php work?

Cleared your cache?

Check your logs, if you have them enabled, and post any error messages that correspond with you trying to access the admin here. logs are found under /var/log

When you say ‘index.php/admin’, do you mean ‘your_url/your_store/admin’ to login to your dashboard [administration panel]?

1. Does the .htaccess file exist and contain the default rewrite rules from the Magento installation package?
2. Make sure that the path to the admin area is not changed. Open app/etc/local.xml and locate the following node:

<admin>
        <
routers>
            <
adminhtml>
                <
args>
                    <
frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName>
                </
args>
            </
adminhtml>
        </
routers>
    </
admin>

Make sure <frontName> is actually set to “admin”.
