Hello chaowie, and thanks for the question.

It looks like you were missing the WordPress default (.htaccess) Rewrite rules. I've gone ahead and placed these in your domain's document root:

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

I've confirmed that your WordPress administrator dashboard should now be accessible over your admin URL:


Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
