If you are a new website administrator, things can sometimes be a little confusing.

If your website has been created using WordPress, then one of the main things you need to learn is how to access your WordPress administration section, as all of your website’s administration is controlled from this section.

Note: The “login” link is hidden in some WordPress themes. If you cannot find this link on your website, then you will need to type your WordPress site login URL into your web browser.

The WordPress admin login URL typically looks like this:

  • http://yourdomain.com/wp-login.php (if WordPress is installed in your root directory)
  • http://yourdomain.com/subfolder/wp-login.php (if WordPress is installed in a subfolder of your domain, e.g. “blog”)
  • You can also get to the login page using this URL: http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin


Note: If the WordPress login section doesn’t display when you type one of the URLs above into your browser, check that the URL you’ve entered is correct.

If you’ve tried all of the above methods and the WordPress login section still does not come up on your browser, then you may need to get technical help troubleshooting the issue.
