In the previous article in our Getting started in Wordpress series we explained the site structure. Now we will show you how to log into your WordPress Dashboard to begin building your website. Logging into WordPress is separate from logging into your cPanel. You will use a different URL and you will use a different username and password (unless you set up WordPress with the same credentials as your cPanel).
How to Login to Wordpress:
- Go to your WordPress website and put /wp-admin at the end of the URL. For example, if your site is located at example.com, then visit example.com/wp-admin to access your login screen. If you renamed your wp-admin folder, use the folder name in place of /wp-admin. Once you have accessed your admin page, it will look like this:
- Enter your Wordpress username and password (you created this when you installed it), then click the Log In button. You will then be in your WordPress Dashboard, it will look like this:
If you installed WordPress on a new domain or on a domain that is not yet pointed to Web Hosting Hub, you will need to point the domain to our Nameservers and either wait 4-24 hours for DNS to propagate or make a change to your WordPress configuration to work through your temporary URL. Once the domain is pointed to our Namesevers and DNS has propagated, you can then remove the temporary URL work around from your WordPress configuration file.
