How To Login To WordPress Sites - WP Admin Access


Log in to WordPress Directly.

These steps explain how to login to your WordPress site directly.

Important Note: This method works with most WordPress installations, including those through Marketplace or Simple Scripts. It will not work if the login methods have been changed from the default setup. For example, if a WordPress security plugin has customized the login URL or the wp-admin folder has been moved.

Determining your login URL

The default URL to login to WordPress is the same URL you would use to visit your site but with "/wp-admin" added to the end of it. For example, if I visit my WordPress website at www.example.com, I would go to www.example.com/wp-admin to access the login screen.

Logging In

  1. Go to your login URL.
  2. Enter your WordPress username and password and click Log in.

    Note: If you are already logged in, you will be taken to the dashboard directly without asking for a username and password.

You now have access to your WordPress dashboard, where you can manage your WordPress site.
