 To log into the WordPress site, first, open your web browser and go to your site's login url. For example, if your site's main url was ''​%%https://​domain.tld%%''​ then the login url would usually be ''​%%https://​domain.tld/​wp-login.php%%''​ . Usually if you are not already logged into the site, ''​%%https://​domain.tld/​wp-admin%%''​ will redirect to this page as well.
