How To Login To Magento


Once you have installed Magento, you will need to login to the dashboard to utilize it’s many features. Luckily logging into Magento is an easy task that should not take extremely long to do.

Where Is The Dashboard Located?

After you have completed the installation of Magento, the last page you arrive to will provide a login URL. This will otherwise be known as the Administrative URL. Essentially you will use this link to visit the login page for your Magento installation. If you have forgotten where your dashboard is or want to know where to find it in the future, you can also view this from within Softaculous.

To view the Administrative URL in Softaculous,

  1. First you will want to login to your cPanel account
  2. Once logged in, you will want to locate the Softaculous Apps Installer, normally this will be located near the bottom. Once found, click on it to proceed to the Softaculous page.
