Hello guys! Let’s talk about the first important things you may be confused with once WordPress installation is completed. The question is how to log in and what details should be used.
The first indicator of successful WordPress installation is a window with login and password.
You create those details when you fill in user name, site name, password, e-mail fields for your website.
Here go the main steps to log in to your WordPress site easily:
Run WordPress engine installation and fill in the required fields to complete it, such as site name, user name, password, e-mail;
Press Install WordPress button.
Then, you should be redirected to WordPress admin panel where you can try the newly created credentials: login and password;
In order to access this window which is called WordPress admin panel or website administration dashboard, simply add /wp-admin or wp-login.php part at the end of your website URL.
