When you are managing many servers and sites it can make sense to always provision your sites using the same Admin settings. Remember, this can be a security vulnerability if you do not use strong passwords and unique Admin usernames, proceed with caution.
Step 1. Go to Your GridPane Settings
Login to your GridPane account and click the Your Settings menu item in the dropdown menu accessible by clicking on your username and icon.
Step 2. Add your Default WP Admin Settings
Locate and click the Default WP Admin Settings option in the left horizontal menu. Here you can edit these Settings.
Step 3 Update your Default WP Admin Settings (Optional)
To update your Default WP Admin Settings, click the blue pencil edit icon.
Update your default settings in the pop up Edit WP Admin Settings modal box and click Update. We recommend that you use the autogenerate password setting for best security.
More on how to locate autogenerated passwords in step 4 below.
Step 4. Deploy GridPane WordPress site
Now just deploy sites as per usual and GridPane will use your default WP Admin Settings during the deployment.
If you’ve autogenerated your password, you can find this by checking the site log. Next to your new WordPress site, click the log icon to open up the log:
Here you’ll see your username and new password as highlight below:
Step 5. Login to WordPress with your default WP Admin User
Once you have deployed your site, as long as your DNS records have resolved, you can visit it at your chosen domain and visit the login page as with any other WordPress site.
Enter your chosen Default WP Admin User credentials and click Log in.
And you will be logged in as your default WordPress Admin User.
From now on, every WordPress site you deploy with GridPane will have your default WordPress Admin User automatically added.
