Save Your Website Login Info Outside of WA

Last Update: February 04, 2017

For anyone that has been up for the past 6 hours would have noticed they couldn't log in to WA.

Been here almost 2 years and this had never happened to me. So, like most people on here, I don't have my website info saved anywhere else because it's easy to access your website through WA.

Well.

Lesson learned after not being able to work on my website for the past 6 hours.

Make sure to save your password somewhere else so that way if you need to access your websites, and can't log in to WA, you won't have any issues.

If you're unsure how to access your website without WA, it's very simple.

all you do is add "admin" to the end of your website url.

Example:

Yourwebsite.com/admin

Type in your username and password.

And then bingo! you are in.

Every great program in the world is going to have some technical issues. There is still no platform out there that can match what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

We just need to be more prepared when server issues happen.

Best Regards,

Brandon

Hi. It states that the admin URL password is hidden for the first 30 days and to send a ticket to receive it now. Not sure what all this means and risks associated. Not aware if this is the correct placement for my question.
Please help!

Thank you in advance,
Billie J. Murphy
