    After testing a move of my website to a new host server at Cloudways, everything immediately looks really good. However, there is a problem that I could not immediately solve.

    The problem comes from the fact that, through HMWP, I changed ‘wp-admin’ to ‘dashboard’.
    My new testsite is http://wordpress-330466-1013669.cloudwaysapps.com and when I try to access my backend after logging in, I get a 404 using http://wordpress-330466-1013669.cloudwaysapps.com/dashboard.

    However, if I change the URL of http://wordpress-330466-1013669.cloudwaysapps.com/wp-admin it goes to the right page, but the hitch is that the URL then appears to switch back to http://wordpress-330466-1013669.cloudwaysapps.com/dashboard when the page has loaded.

    Do you guys have an idea of what this issue might be and how it can be solved?

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Best wishes
    Mats

    Hi, I reset the previous HMWP settings and configured it again in your site. It seems to be working fine, but when I rename wp-admin path name to ‘dashboard’ (in Permalinks & URLs tab), it switches back to wp-admin automatically (https://www.screencast.com/t/ivPLHtuxXU)
    It seems like some conflict with the other plugins or theme. Is it okay if we check disabling other plugins and switching to WP default theme? Let us know. Thanks!
