Once you have completed the installation of WordPress you can login to your dashboard. The admin section of WordPress, the “WordPress Dashboard”, is where you will begin building your WordPress site. Please take note that your login credentials are not the same as your cPanel username and password unless you set them up as the same. You will need some information to login to WordPress.
- WordPress Installation URL: if you installed WordPress on the root of your domain your URL to access WordPress would be: example.com/wp-admin
- WordPress Username: This is the username you set up when initially installing WordPress.
- WordPress Password: This is the password you set up when installing WordPress. If you emailed the installation details during the installation process it will be in that email as well.
Steps to log into WordPress
Step 1: To access the WordPress dashboard you simply need to add /wp-adminto the end of the URL where you installed WordPress like the below example:
When you visit the login page for WordPress you will see the login screen.
Step 2: Type the username and password you used when you installed your WordPress.
After you login to the dashboard successfully you will see the WordPress dashboard.
If you installed WordPress on a new domain or on a domain that is not yet pointed to your account with TNP HOST hosting, then you will not be able to use the dashboard until you point the domain to our servers or until the DNS changes take effect. You can set WordPress up to use your temp URL. The Temporary URL can be found in your TNP HOST Client area service details.
If for whatever reason you are unable to log into your WordPress Dashboard, you can contact our tech support to have the login fixed.
I can’t log into my WordPress dashboard
There are several reasons why you may be getting errors when trying to log into your WordPress dashboard. We will go over a few of the common ones.
WordPress login disabled
If you are getting this error, it is because there have been too many failed logins on your dashboard, in which our automated systems have disabled your WordPress admin to prevent your site being compromised due to WordPress brute force attacks. To resolve this issue, it is best to heighten the security of your WordPress site to that malicious users do not have the opportunity to attempt to log into your site. We have written an excellent article at the following that outlines this process.
Username or password is incorrect
Many times, users simply forget their password. Luckily, we have written an excellent article on resetting your WordPress password. You may find it at the following.
