wordpress can’t access wp-admin my own experience.
When i first set up this blog, i have so many things to try.
I first, did some google researches about so many things, follow some blog posts, and apply it to my blog.
When this wordpress blog installed for the first time, i use http://blog.web6.org.
But then a few months later i changed it with www. which is now www.blog.web6.org. As you can guess, that was not a wise move to change from non www to www, because i lost lots of backlinks to my old url.
But i am glad i did it, because it was for the good reasons. If you do the same thing, without preparation, i am sure in the next move, you can’t access wp-admin of your wordpress blog.
Can’t access wp-admin, why does this happen?
Except of other reasons above, it also can be caused by adding some plugins, and they are not compatible or you added incorrect, so it will cause some parse error message.

If you change your url, and not updating your wordpress files which are sitting in your cPanel, it is a big possibility you can’t access wp-admin.
This is because wordpress holds two kinds of addresses, one for your wordpress files path, and the other one, for a file which is index.php.
So when you can’t access wp-admin of wordpress, you will mostly find your site has white ugly page. It looses the path to the files.
