    The way I usually manually go about this is through a php reverse shell from pentestmonkey . All you have to do is login to the admin panel on the Wordpress site and replace the code in the 404 page with the reverse shell (don’t forget to change the IP and port variables in the shell). Then you set up your listener (you can use metasploit or just ‘nc -lvnp {port}’ and trigger the shell by visiting the 404 page.
