How to log into PrestaShop 1.5 DashboardWritten by Scott Mitchell
Now that you have successfully installed PrestaShop 1.5, you are ready to log into the Admin Dashboard so you can begin creating your shopping cart. The PrestaShop 1.5 Dashboard is the administrative area of your store where you can add new products and manage all other aspects of the storefront as well.
Before logging into the PrestaShop 1.5 Dashboard for the first time
To log into your Prestashop 1.5 Administrator Dashboard for the first time, you will need to know the email address and password you entered when you installed the program. You will also need to have completed the following tasks for security reasons:
- Deleted the install folder
- Renamed the Admin folder (for example admin123, adminxyz, 123admin, xyzadmin, etc.) For sample purposes only, we will use admin123 as the new admin folder name.
Failure to do both of these will prevent you from being able to log into the PrestaShop 1.5 Dashboard.
To log into the PrestaShop 1.5 Dashboard:
- Visit your PrestaShop 1.5 Dashboard login page
To get to the login area, type in your new admin URL based on what you renamed your admin folder. Using the example above (admin123), it would be http://www.sampledomain.com/admin123. You should see a login page like the one below:
Login using your email address and password
From there you will sign in with the email address and password you entered when installing the program. Upon successfully logging in, you should see your dashboard and all the tools necessary to build your new shopping cart.
