This is pretty embarrassing. I installed iThemes Security and enabled the feature that changes wp-admin to something else in an effort to hide it. That's fine, but then I tried to login to my backend today and got a 404.I completely forgot to see what it changed my backend to so now I have no idea where to find it.

I tried /admin/ like others suggested but that's not it.

Anyone know where to find my missing backend? :(

Hi Sheldon,

The default slug is "wplogin". If you changed it you can find the slug in the Hide Backend section in your htaccess.

For further support:

If you are using the free version, please post on the WordPress.org support forums: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/better-wp-security

Thanks for understanding,
