I haven't touched this site for a while but when I just tried to access the back end, I get a 404 for the /administrator directory.

thanks for the response ecd.

I discovered the problem today, there is a redirect from the original host still in place and the nameservers haven't been changed.  I'm guessing that's why I can't access the admin area with the normal /administrator path.  I've managed to access the site using an alternative host login now.
