To log into AdminCentral, go to:

  • Author instance - http://localhost:8080/magnoliaAuthor/.magnolia/admincentral
  • Public instance - http://localhost:8080/magnoliaPublic/.magnolia/admincentral

The generic form of the URL is http://<domain>:[<port>]/<contextPath>/.magnolia. It may be different on your system.

Session Timeout After user Inactivity

The session timeout defines the allowed time of inactivity after which the user must login again. The session timeout for the Magnolia AdminCentral is bound to the session timeout of the underlying servlet container. 

For instance on a Tomcat server the session timeout is configured per web application in the web.xml and looks like this:

<session-config>
  <session-timeout>30</session-timeout><!-- in minutes -->
</session-config>
