One of the common WordPress questions I get asked is “How do I log in to WordPress?” New users to WordPress have a hard time finding their login page URL. In this post, I will show you how to find your WordPress login URL.

Why do you need the login URL?

The login page is how you access the admin area of your WordPress website once you are logged in, you can create new blog posts, add new static pages, change your design by customising your theme, add and manage your plugins or even manage your online store.

Follow these steps to access the WordPress admin page!

Standard WordPress Method:

On a standard WordPress install in your main directory you will be able to access your site by adding either /wp-admin/ or /wp-login.php/ on the end of your website URL.

Example:

www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin
www.yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php

Sub Domain Method:

If your WordPress installation is installed in a subdomain, you will be able to access your site by adding either /wp-admin/ or /wp-login.php/ on the end of your subdomain website URL.

Example:

www.subdomain.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin
www.subdomain.yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php

Subfolder Method:

If your WordPress installation is installed in a subfolder, you will be able to access your site by adding either /wp-admin/ or /wp-login.php/ on the end of your subfolder on the website URL.

Example:

www.yourwebsite.com/subfolder/wp-admin
www.yourwebsite.com/subfolder/wp-login.php

Bonus Tip: How to bookmark a webpage.

  2. Press Ctrl + D (Use the Command button instead of Control button if on a Mac)

  3. Change the Name if you want and Select the folder location.

  4. Click Done/ADD
