add the ADMIN PANEL to the Staging environment
Staging environment should have the same ADMIN PANEL as regular site. I cannot seem to login to my Wordpress dashboard in the Staging environment. I am using the same User and Password as in the environment that I just created the staging environment from. The first thing I tried was disabling the PASSWORD PROTECTION but that did not help. I won't have anything to Push to production until I can make updates to staging.
The work-around was to create a second Super Admin in the original site before creating Staging for it, and use that instead.
