Error when trying to get to wp-admin sign-in page

    When I try to go to the admin page, I keep getting this message:

    “The requested URL /wp-admin/your_website_url_here/wp-login.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

    I’m a bit of a newbie to web design, so could someone give me a step by step guide to fixing this?

    @1tess Thank you for responding it’s actually for my friend’s site at She was having problems with setting everything up and I’ve had some experience with wordpress and installing ecwid shopping carts so I told her that I would set everything up for her. So she gave me all of the domain/cpanel info, but I’m having trouble getting to the admin wordpress page for the site so that I can start working on everything.

    Here are differences explained in more detail:
