Accessing the Backend Magento:
All of the basic configuration tasks are performed in the Magento CE backend. The
following describes how to access and log in to the Magento CE backend.
Tip: Immediately after you install Magento CE, you can easily open the backend by
clicking the Go to Backend button on the last page of the Magento Installation

you specified in the Magento Installation Wizard with the addition of the suffix
