I have a dev server (sandbox.site.com) and a prod server (www.site.com). I copied over the contents from sandbox to dev using cp -r. Loading up my website on the production site looks fine. Everything is where it should be, the few entries I have in place loaded, images are there, etc.
The problem comes when trying to load the admin panel; I get a white screen. I enabled devMode and that gave me the login fields with no styling. I am unable to login (99% certain I have the user/pw right) and there are no error messages.
I searched for "error" in my craft.log, but nothing really stood out at me. I have a lot of the following errors:
[exception.Craft\HttpException.404] exception 'Craft\HttpException' in /home/user/craft/app/controllers/TemplatesController.php:59
but the timestamp isn't the same time as trying to login to the control panel.
