Welcome to WordPress! This is your new content management system (CMS) for your website! You must be excited because now you can create and edit content and post to your blog!
We know that there is no obvious way to login to WordPress, which is why we put up this guide. Once we have completed the installation of WordPress for your website, you can log in to your dashboard. The admin section of WordPress, the “WordPress Dashboard,” is where you will begin modifying and creating pages and posts for your WordPress site. Keep in mind that your WordPress login credentials are independent of any other login type. When we install WordPress for our clients, we will install it within the root part of your domain URL. Therefore if your domain is mynewwebsite.com, then your URL login access would be www.mynewwebsite/wp-admin
You can log into WordPress in two easy steps.
Enter your domain name into your web browser. Next add /wp-admin to your URL. For example, if your domain name is www.Example.com, then you would simply enter www.example.com/wp-admin into your web browser and you will be prompted to a login area. Press the Enter or Return on your keyboard.
1. Type your domain name in place of example.com and add /wp-admin
2. Press Enter or Return on your keyboard.
You will be prompted to enter your username and password.
OPTIONAL: Checkmark the Remember Me box and your browser will save the username and password. NEVER do this on a public or shared computer (unless you know you can trust everyone).
Your Username and Password will either be assigned to you or you would have told us what you wanted.
