The best way to install the selenium package is using the following command: $ pip install selenium
or on macOS with Homebrew $ brew install geckodriver
If you are using Anaconda just simply activate your virtual environment and then install geckodriver using the following command: $ conda install -c conda-forge geckodriver
Then you’ll need a driver to interface with the browser you choose. I used Firefox in this example, therefore I downloaded the required geckodriver driver.
Drivers for other browser: selenium-python.readthedocs.io
You might need to set the PATH of your geckodriver.
This python source code will pull up a Firefox window and open the url that you need set https://yourwpdomain.com/wp-login.php, then find user_login and user_pass elements on the page (by the id) and finally send a click() function to the submitButton.
If everything goes well the next thing you should see is your WordPress dashboard page in the browser.
from selenium import webdriver
browser = webdriver.Firefox()
#browser = webdriver.Firefox(executable_path=r'your\path\geckodriver.exe')
url = "https://yourwpdomain.com/wp-login.php" # set your WordPress domain
username = browser.find_element_by_id("user_login")
password = browser.find_element_by_id("user_pass")
username.send_keys("yourUserName") # add your WordPress UserName
password.send_keys("yourPassword") # add your WordPress Password
submitButton = browser.find_element_by_id("wp-submit")
If you are using Windows you might need to set the geckodriver PATH with FirefoxDriver.
browser = webdriver.Firefox(executable_path=r'your\path\geckodriver.exe')
