Having the same problem. Permalinks are set to option 5 (page name only). The wp-login link now returns a 404, but so does the specified redirect URL, which is previewed as https://domain/wp/sitelogin … could there be an issue with WP installations in subfolders?

did you see my reply below?

The WP installation is not in the domain/web root, but in its “/wp” subfolder

The WP directory and the start page settings on the WP config page are both configured as “https://domain/w”p (no trailing slash)

The name of the login page in the firewall plugin is set to “sitelogin”

The WP installation works without problems, but the https://domain/wp/sitelogin URL that is displayed on the firewall page now doesn’t work (404)

I’m glad I tested the login URL in a second browser before logging out in the first one; because apparently I have no way left to log in 🙂

When I reset the login page name in the firewall settings to blank, everything is fine again
