Where is WordPress admin entry and how to find it? Short answer:
-> your site.com/wp-admin <-
However, this may not always work. For example, you may encounter this situation if you have not installed a standard version of WordPress yourself. Or, if a web design firm has set up WordPress for you with various customizations, the admin path may have been changed for security reasons.
- Widely used login paths – İlk denemeniz gerekenler
- Subdomain check – blog.site.com
- Subfolder check – siteniz.com/alt-klasor/wp-admin
- Deactivating plugins – Sitenize giriş yapamamanıza sebep olan eklentileri devre dışı bırakmak.
- Learning & resetting your admin login data via Database Management – Biraz karmaşık ama etkili.
Trying the above variations might fix the problem.
How to enter WordPress admin panel?Subdomain check
So if you ask what subdomain is, it is the shortest explanation: the blog section on blog.site.com. So: it is the part that comes before your domain name. If WordPress is installed in a subdomain of your domain name, you will need to login to WordPress through this subdomain. So correct URL would be blog.site.com/wp-admin .Subfolder check
If you can’t find the login page despite doing all these things, your admin login page has been changed for sure. This may be caused by plugins or by modified PHP files.
If there is such a situation and you need to login to your site, I do not think you will have any problems as long as you have the hosting information.
Most hosting companies already make it easy for you to login to WordPress admin with one click. You can get a clearer understanding by examining the installed plugins after you log in quickly using this feature. As I mentioned, you will probably see that a plugin has replaced the default home page.
If your hosting company does not have such a feature or if the feature of your hosting company is in the form of directing you only to the admin page, it is very normal that you cannot log in by this method. So what do we do in this situation?
Our method is this: since we can access our site’s files via FTP, we can also rename the folders. I will talk about a tip for WordPress that I use from time to time, which saves me a lot of time. If your site has become inaccessible for any reason and you think it is caused by a plugin, you can overcome this problem by deactivating all plugins via FTP.
If you connect to your site via FTP with online or offline tools, you will see a screen similar to the one shown in the picture. Here, change the name of the Plugins folder located within the wp-content folder to something else. For example, in such cases I add a random number to the beginning of the original name of the folder (1plugins can be the new name).
Since the name of the folder has changed, WordPress stops seeing these files as related to plugins anymore. Therefore, these plugins are automatically disabled. So if a plugin that changes your login connection is installed, it will automatically be disabled with this method. This means that you will be able to login via the standard WordPress login address.
Although it is actually the subject of a different article, let me briefly talk about how you can change your WordPress username and password with Database access (with PhpMyAdmin here). Because if you do not know your WordPress login link, I assume that there is a high possibility that you don’t know the current username and password.Learning your username and hanging your password via PhpMyAdmin
In such case, you locate the wp-users table via PhpMyAdmin. Here, you can change the password of the existing user name as you wish and then select MD5 option, then press “Go”. This method can be used not only to change passwords, but also to change the username.
