Use the advanced install. It has all same features as an easy install. Plus, it allows your to customize your site down the road if you want. I’ve never used the easy install myself but it may be confused by your setup.
[/quote]Thanks, but to be thorough, should I add the domain first, then used advanced install… or just use the advanced install and it will automatically add the domain for me?
I’ll go test it out but would still appreciate your 2nd reply.

I’m surprised about the #6 problem. For Easy Mode, you just type in the (sub)domain you want to host.
But I agree with sean in that the Advanced install of WordPress is definitely the way to go. Just make sure you go to Manage Domains and set up a Fully Hosted domain first.
[/quote]Well, I wanted it on the top level so that the domain itself revealed the blog. I set up an easy install and it complained that the domain was already hosted. So, in the confusion, I deleted the domain, thinking the error message meant that Easy Install would both add the domain AND do the easy install.
Well, in my haste, I didn’t read that if I deleted a domain on a promo account, then I could not re-add it. So, now it DOES look re-added but it doesn’t have the WebFTP | FTP | Add IP links under the name. The one click install page IS showing an install, though… even after I went and deleted the domain and seem to have re-added it.
I was expecting to add a domain, then 1 click install. It hasn’t worked out that way.
Any help appreciated,
btw, my 3 domains each say registrar unknown… yet I’m sure I put the dns info in the proper places in the domain records at godaddy. What’s it take 2-3 days to propogate or something?
