I’ve recently bought my domain through Dreamhost and am attempting to get it hosted so that I can use WordPress.
I am being billed for the domain and for hosting but for some reason, when I click the WordPress install, it says: “You currently have no active domains with us. You’ll need to add one before installing any software!” So I click on “Add”.
That takes me to “Manage Domains” where the heading “All hosted domains on this account” correctly lists the domain I want hosted.
I then click on “Web Hosting” “Add” (it currently reads “none”). That takes me to “Manage Domains”. The “Fully Hosted” section has the correct domain but then the next box asks for “Users, Files, and Paths - create new user (blank) stockholm”. I have no idea what this is and what it is asking for.
Then web and logs directory looks correct.
“Web Options” again confuses me. Should I be going for the recommended PHP CGI? I chose this in one of my circuits and I don’t know whether that was correct for my WordPress objective.
I ignored Google hosted services as I want WordPress and don’t have or require a GMail account. And I think the rest doesn’t apply to me. Or do I need DNS?
Under Dreamhost “Manage Account” - “Domains Hosted” it gives the name of my domain but under “hosting type”, says “none”. Yet, under Hosting Plan it gives a name I gave it when registering, and the billing amount and dates.
I’ve clearly gone wrong somewhere. Please help.
