    I had to deactivate the plugin to fix not being able to access admin panel at all.
    Now if i reactivate the plugin it automatically tries to take me to the path I attempted to use the first time, and the website still broken.
    I have no idea how to do a clean install, with out any options already being chosen.

    Hi, did you rename wp-admin path name? If so, you might have missed some step during the rename process. Please do these:

    1) In “wp_options” table in your database, delete the rows with following “option_name”. Please backup your database first.
    – hide_my_wp
    – hide_my_wp_undo
    – hmwp_ids_installed
    – hmw_all_plugins
    – external_updates-hide_my_wp
    – hmwp_spam_counter
    – hmwp_temp_admin_path

    2) comment out or remove following line from wp-config.php (if you have added it there previously)
    define(“ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH”, “/NEW_WPADMIN_PATH_NAME”);

    You shall now be able to login to backend, and can re-configure the plugin.

    Yeah, no
    I already had those removed, but reloading the plugin tries to take me back to the renamed panel which gives a 500 error and doesn’t allow me to access the panel at all.
    Sigh

    It could be that you haven’t removed the code from wp-config.php file. If it’s still the issue then please let us know your site’s wp-admin login details and FTP details (as private reply) so that we fix it for you. Thanks!

    I’ve configured HMWP plugin in your site. But renaming wp-admin is causing some conflict in your site, so I’ve disabled renaming it.
    Please check your site and let us know if everything is working fine or not.

    Yes everything is working. It’s a shame changing the wp-admin isn’t working that’s what I got the plugin for in the first place.
    It’s likely a plugin conflict I’m guessing.
