If someone else has set-up Episerver for you, then you will need to speak to them in order to get an Episerver account created for you.
If you have set-up Episerver yourself and this is the first time you want to access the editor, to login to Episerver you can use a local Windows administrator account on your computer. In Episerver there are no default Episerver credentials built in like some other CMS systems. In most cases, you can simply use the account you log into Windows to access Episerver.
If your local account does not log you in, then it is worth looking on your PC to make sure your account has administrator access. You can view the local Windows users by opening up the Windows User Account screen, located in:
‘Start’ -> ‘Control Panel’ -> ‘User Accounts’ -> ‘Manage User Accounts’
In here you can make sure your account has administrator permissions. On your user account, click the properties button.
Make sure the ‘Administrator’ option is enabled. If it isn’t and you cannot change it, you will have to speak to your IT department. NOTE You may need to log out of Windows for these settings to successfully be applied. After you have set your windows user with the correct permissions, you should be able to log into Episerver.
Once successfully logged into Episerver, you will be redirected to the Episerver editor for your site.
From here you can view the website navigation tree and edit your website how you want to.
