Kind of embarassing but I've forgotten how to log into the admin panel. I know there's a separate URL but I haven't worked on the site in months. Any help appreciated!
It's okay. I used to forgot it in my earlier days when i've started working on Magento.
By default the Magento admin URL is: www.example.com/admin
But if you have customized your admin URL, you can find it from: app->etc->local.xml
In this file you'll the code
In which you can know your admin URL.
Let me know if you still have the issue.
