    Hi,
    yes I have that issue.
    In this case you need first to make backup in cpanel (if you have cPanel hosting)
    then you need to check htaccess for redirects (maybe is there redirect code).
    Maybe some plugin in WP make this redirect (if you have Yoast, check Redirects option (SEO > Redirects)
    This is common redirects problems.

    and third we can check this for you for small fee (our paid monthy service or one time fee).
    Regards, Sasa

    that's what so strange about this issue. this is a new installation of wordpress on localhost. i used to be able to get to the admin dashboard using /admin, then one day, it stops working and now i have to use /wp-admin to access the dashboard. i haven't installed any plugins or themes and htaccess has not been modified.
