Hit ADMIN _wordpress login fails

Using Flywheel to learn wordpress but when I hit the ADMIN I can’t login to wordpress? What password should I be using? The wordpress.com password works when I login from a separate page, but does not work here?


When you create the site in Local, it should have asked you to specify a username and password. If you’re not sure what they are, you can:

  1. If the site is empty, you can delete and recreate the site, noting the username and password.
  2. You can go to Utilities, then click Open Mailhog, then open a new tab or window in your web browser, then try doing a password reset from the admin login. It will send the password reset e-mail to the Mailhog window that was opened.

There is also some magic that you can do in Adminer/the database, but I wouldn’t recommend that unless you’re really locked out of something you need and password reset doesn’t work.
