can't find wp-admin login (for dummies) (9 posts)

    Hi, I have just uploaded WP to my ftp, with the aim of creating a blog to my "old" website, and the upload is seemingly successful.

    But now I can't find anywhere to log in to wp (wp-admin) …
    When I type in http://www.mywebsite.com/wp-admin , my "old" website shows up in full, but no sign of any wordpress login …?

    In the ftp, I have not named the right hand side "remote site:/". Is this connected to the error?
    I have created a folder called /blog under the remote site, and in this all the WP-files are stored.

    Can someone guide me..?

    (My "old" website is made with another template)

    thanks,
    alo

    Then you'll most likely you'll it at http://www.mywebsite.com/blog/wp-admin

    Thank you, but my website just shows up again, without any sign of wp-login.. I discovered that no matter what signs or words I write behind my website address, it shows up 'as it is' over again.

    Any other suggestions, anyone?

    Thank you,
    alo

    I'm confused..
    you uploaded the files to http://www.mywebsite.com/blog ? did you created database in your panel ? did you created the folder like "/blog" or "blog" ?
    Please provide more details

    Thank you, I created a "child" folder called blog, not /blog … But there is still no title of the "parent" folder. If I write anything in the box saying "Remote site: /" it will not stay there..

    Did you change the site address / url in settings » general?

    Do you mean in the wp-config.php file?
    Or where?
    Thanks

    …or do I do this in the "Site manager"/General in the ftp program (Filezilla)? …it is not easy to be a new bee… :(

    In ftp / site manager / general:
    1) If I create a new site here, do I still use the MySQL username and password from my webhost?

    2) When/Where do WP login come into play?

    Thanks :)

    No, in settings » general in the WP admin area.
