Tips to Search the WP Login Link
If you took the services of WordPress site from a good web hosting service provider then just by adding /login/ or /admin/ will do the job.
- www.abc.com- your site
- www.abc.com/login/ or www.abc.com/admin/- both of them should do the trick
In normal cases, both the above URLs will take you to the login page and thereafter you can log in and do the required tasks but in the case due to some problems, this does not works, writing www.abc.com/wp-login.php will do the same task for you.
