How to log into your Movable Type admin dashboard
Now that you have installed your Movable Type application, you will need to know how to log into the administration section. The steps below will guide you on accessing your administration dashboard for your Movable Type application.
Logging into your Movable Type Admin section
- Visit your Moveable Type dashboard login page.
This is a bit tricky as it is not obvious at first. There is no login or sign in link on the main screen. Your login URL will be example.com/cgi-bin/mt.cgi. (Be sure to replace example.com with your own domain name.)This will bring up your login screen.
- Login using your admin username and password.
Type in the admin username and password you created in the installation process and then click on the Sign In button just under the credential fields.
Congratulations! You have logged in for the first time.

Just a helpful comment.
If the above link to login to your new MT DASHBOARD does not work for you (it will work for some, but not for others), try instead [still replacing example.com with your own domain name]
*There is an extra folder "mt" in this one. some leave the MT default entry "mt" folder in place during setup. You should immediately get a popup window with MT logo and login prompt. If during setup you remove that "mt" name from the box and it installs in the main directory, the link above works. If you change the name during setup and both of the above links don't work, change the "mt" part of this link to the name you changed it to and you should be fine. Peace!
