In the iThemes security plugin, I changed the admin link a couple weeks ago, however the change did not take - I could not access the admin panel of my site using the new link; only the standard one. Now, I am trying to access the admin panel via the standard wp-admin URL that was working recently, but I get a 404 error. I assume this setting went into effect, but I can't remember what I changed the link to. Is there a way to find out what I changed it to in the web files? Or can I temporarily disable the plugin to deactivate this change and access my admin panel via the standard link?

Hey Themarkcorp,

Welcome to the iThemes community forums!

You can disable the feature by deactivating the plugin via FTP by renaming it. You can also find the login slug in the Hide Backend block of code in your .htaccess.
