How do I log in to my WordPress website? Common problems with solutions for logging into your WordPress website!
After you have installed your first WordPress website, you will of course want to log in to the back end of your own WordPress website to view, manage and configure everything!
WordPress is a CMS system (Content Management System) and so it has a so-called backend where you can manage the website, articles, pages, layouts and configuration without having to program a single line!
A WordPress website that is installed always has a default URL / link with which you can log in. In general this is the following URL:
URL WordPress backend
To log into your own WordPress website backend for the first time, go to the URL: https://www.theory7.net/wp-admin (replace theory7.net with your own domain name).
You will see a login screen where you are asked for your username and password. The data you previously set up or received by email, you enter here.
Next you click on the often blue button login to actually login to your own WordPress website backend.
After successfully logging into your WordPress website where the username and password were both accepted, you will see your own WordPress dashboard.
This often looks like the dashboard in the following image:
On this WordPress dashboard you will often see:
Suppose you can’t log into the backend from your WordPress password anymore, because you forgot the password, luckily you can simply and quickly ‘reset’ the password via the forgot password feature of WordPress.
In this case you go back to https://www.theory7.net/wp-admin (replacing theory7.net with your own domain name) and click on the link “Forgot password” below the login window.
This will take you to a new page where you can quickly and easily reset your WordPress password so that you can log in again!
