In this tutorial we explain how-to log into your WordPress Dashboard admin area after installing WordPress on your Ecenica WordPress hosting package.
What is the WordPress Dashboard?
WordPress dashboard is the control centre for any website which uses WordPress. The dashboard is where you can write new blog posts, edit existing pages, upload images, change themes and install new plugins.
How-to log into your WordPress Dashboard steps
- Access WordPress Dashboard by adding **/wp-admin** to the end of your website domain.
For example; http://www.your-domain.co.uk/wp-admin
- Enter your WordPress username and password and click login.
Note: If you installed WordPress in a folder, such as, blog, then you can reach your WordPress admin dashboard by adding **/wp-admin/** to the folder. For example; http://www.your-domain.co.uk/blog/wp-admin
Note: Your WordPress username and password were set when you installed WordPress. The login may be different from your Ecenica Dashboard, email or cPanel details. If you installed WordPress using our 1-click Installer then may have a copy of the username and password in your email inbox.
