How to login to WordPress admin localhost

Logging into the WordPress admin panel on your localhost follows these steps:

  1. Open your web browser.
  2. Navigate to the login address. In the address bar, type: http://localhost/your-wordpress-directory/wp-admin/
    • Replace your-wordpress-directory with the actual directory name where you installed WordPress. By default, it’s often just “wordpress”.
  3. Enter your login credentials. On the login page, enter the username and password you created during the initial WordPress installation on your localhost.
    • Note: These credentials are separate from any login information you might have for
  4. Click “Log In”. If your credentials are correct, you’ll be logged into the WordPress admin dashboard.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • Local development environment: If you’re using a local development environment like XAMPP, the port number might differ from the standard 80. In that case, the address might look like http://localhost:8080/your-wordpress-directory/wp-admin/
  • Changed login address: For security reasons, you might have changed the default WordPress login address during installation. If so, you’ll need to use the custom address you set up. Refer to your website’s documentation for the specific login address.

I hope this helps you access your WordPress admin panel on localhost!
