2018-04-25 8:38 pm takes me to my wordpress admin area, not to WHMCS. Ideas on how I redirect this?

This typically means that WordPress is installed at "" instead of WHMCS. I recommend verifying the location of your WHMCS installation. For example, if you installed it in a /whmcs folder, you may have to navigate to "" to access it.

Thank you,
