Thoughts on “How to log into the Drupal 7 Administrator Dashboard

  • hello sir ,

    I am using drupal 7 vesion

    my first question is that what is the super admin url for login

    is it   

    https://localhost/drupal/admin

    or anything else

    and if i create my new theme in drupal that time iam not able to login by  given upper url so can you define how i can login in my admin pannel and aslo please suggest me proper theme creating process

    • The login page should be located here:

      https://www.your-website-name.com/?q=user/login

      OR

      https://www.your-website-name.com/user

      I’m not entirely sure what you are asking about logging in given the upper URL. As for a guide to developing a Drupal theme, we dont have an article but I’d suggest starting here:

      Theming and Front End Development with Drupal

  • https://localhost/drupal/admin

    https://localhost/drupal/?q=admin

    a password to log in is exactly but i can’t login.

    Hope your replying. Thanks!

    • Hello hophuong,

      Thank you for your question. If your password/username combination is not working in Drupal 7, you may have to reset your Admin Password.

      If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

      Thank you,

  • I create a custom theme using drupal 7 when i logout who can i login again i try all things like www.mydomainname.com/user and www.mydomainname.com/q=user but i canot find admin login form. please help me.

    • Hello Umar,

      Be sure you have the question mark in the URL when using https://example.com/?q=user

      Other than that, the URL should work and present a login section. If not, then you may have done something in the theme to prevent it.

      Kindest Regards,
      Scott M
