The two comments below are worthy answers, however the fault was all mine.

I normally work with a boilerplate which has the control panel at {site_url}/admin.php . I forgot that some people don't have it set up that way.

The weird thing was that logging at {site_url}/admin.php worked until I tried to access add-ons, however logging in at {site_url}/system fixed the issue.


Check the value of $config['cp_url'], under Admin → System Administration → Config File Editor. My guess would be that you have index.php as the script name in there.

Reset the shortcut tabs and it'll be fine.
