Wordpress ‘404: Page not found’

asked Jul 13, 2012 in Graphic Design by MirrorXYZ (1,400 points)

I tried to password protect my site with Network Solution’s password protection, I am not quite sure what I did wrong, but ever since I tried this I can’t go to any page other than the home page. I keep getting the ‘404 page not found’ error message : “This error is generated when there was no web page with the name you specified at the web site.”
Can someone please help me sort this out?

Any help will be really appreciated

try the following

1.Check that the linking page does  exists in the right folder.
2.Check your for case sensitivity in your file name. For example index.htm is not the same as Index.htm
3.disable all rewrite rules temporarily by renaming the .htaccess file
4.removed all the password protections,

Try resetting your permalinks to default, and then set them back to your customization
