Super n00bie question here:

I just used the WebFaction installer to make a fresh Wordpress website at subdomain.example.com/site

when I navigate to that URL I of course get the default front page of an untouched Wordpress blog.

how do I get to the WP Admin area to start working on the site?? where do I find the admin username/password?

If you're looking at the front page of a default WordPress installation, then there should be a "log in" link somewhere near the bottom of the sidebar.

If not, then you can access it at the site URL, plus "wp-admin/" eg, "http://subdomain.example.com/site/wp-admin/".

The default admin username is 'admin'.

The admin password is in the "extra info" field of your app record in the control panel.

Hope that helps!
