I currently have a Wordpress website (via GoDaddy) and I cannot access the WP Admin portion of the page.
When I go to WP-Admin, I receive a browser message that “This page isn’t working. It has redirected you too many times.” Try clearing your cookies. I did try clearing your cookies to no avail.
I also tried to go to the WP-Admin.php link. On that page, I received an Error 429: Too Many Requests.
Earlier today, I signed up for CloudFlare to secure a free SSL. I changed over the domain nameservers to Cloudflare. It appeared to work. Within about 30 minutes, my website was redirected to an HTTPS connection.
Once that worked, I downloaded a WP Plug-in to Reset my page. Shortly thereafter, the WP Admin page was unavailable. The original website is currently working, but it’s only showing a fresh “hello world” template (so the reset worked).
I initially contacted GoDaddy’s customer service. The first time, they informed me they would restart my site. Told me to wait 90 minutes.
After 2 hours, still not working. Contacted them again. This representative seemed a bit better informed. They told me “the domain is not pointing to website managed wordpress” and gave me an IP address.
This time they told me to update my DNS A record. It already appeared to match what they wanted me to update, but they told me to delete it and update again. I did so. Still no access.
I tried searching the forums but unable to gain access. Can anyone assist?
