After you have installed Joomla 3, your next step is to log into the Joomla 3.0 admin dashboard. The administrator dashboard is where you will manage your Joomla 3.1 website. We also have an updated guide on How to Log in to your Joomla 3.5 Dashboard.

Logging into your Joomla 3 Dashboard

  1. Visit your Joomla 3 site's homepage, and add /administrator to the end of the URL. If you installed Joomla to, then you'll need to visit
  2. You will then see the following login screen. Enter the username and password you set during the installation process, and then click Log In.

    Congratulations, you have successfully logged into your Joomla 3.0 dashboard! You should now see a screen similar to the one below:

Dear Brad,

You are simply a star. I have spent last 4 days to find out a solution of this issue; however, you are then one, who have done it. Cheers!

Ah.... It's called "Control Panel"! I spent 10 minutes looking for a "dashboard" and didn't find any! Don't call it a dashboard when Joomla doesn't even call it a dashboard; that only confuses issues right off the bat!
