Logging Into WordPress

The admin section of WordPress, also referred to as the “WordPress Dashboard“, is where you can manage and edit your WordPress website. Please take note that you should have received your login credentials from your site admin.

To access the WordPress dashboard you simply need to add /wp-admin to the end of the URL where you installed WordPress. For example:


Type the username and password you used when you installed your WordPress.

Once you login you will see the WordPress dashboard.

If you are getting this error, it is because there have been too many failed logins on your dashboard.

This will typically get reset after a an hour and you can attempt to login again. However, if the problem persists, contact your site admin.

Username or password is incorrect
