Logging in to WordPress takes me to home page

When I log in to my wordpress install it takes me to home page rather than dashboard. I'm using the HC Custom WP-Admin URL on a 3.9 install. When I enter the url with the slug I get the login page, but after I enter username and password it redirects back to home page rather than dashboard. I haven't logged in for three weeks. Thanks!

Hello, Thank you for contacting us about difficulty logging into WordPress. As a test, you can try disabling your plugins. Since you cannot get into your Dashboard, you can rename the plugins folder in your wp-content directory with your cPanel File Manager, favorite FTP program, or which file management approach you prefer. If you're unsure of how to do that you can find more detailed steps in our WordPress troubleshooting guide. Best, Christopher M.
