My domain is www.fonderhealth.com. I have installed wordpress one click, but haven’t received any further instructions. When visiting my domain, I can see that wordpress has, indeed, been added. However, I can’t seem to figure out my next steps. When trying to log in at fonderhealth.com none of the possible usernames and passwords visible on dreamhost seem to allow me to log in to wordpress.
Based on searches through other threads, it appears some people received an email with instructions and requesting they set up log in credentials and such. I’ve not received any such email. I’ve not found any guide that helps me figure out the steps to administrating Wordpress via the one click.
What I’ve done so far:
*Added Wordpress One Click on Dreamhost
*Downloaded WinSCP and successfully connected it to my SFTP (apparently, with one click, this is likely unnecessary)
*Checked wordpress and dreamhost forums for further answers
What I hope to do:
*Post articles, photos, and administer my wordpress site as fonderhealth.com
*Install a premium wordpress theme I purchased (which is why I did the one click)
Other possibly helpful info:
*I have a wordpress.com account. I do not have a wordpress.org account.
*This is my first time with all of this
UPDATE: I found some instructions online re: my issue. I erased my DB and reloaded the one click. following the instructions I found online I was able to get a little further into the process. However, once attempting to log in to WP using http://www.yourdomainname.com/wp-admin/ I received the following error: "unused
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log."
I’m still lost on what to do from here but finally have a bit of hope in the matter.
UPDATE: (you guys are watching the evolution of a n00b)
so i figured out how to log in to phpmyadmin. from there i was able to find the user and PW info in the db logs (or whatever this info structure is called). however, when entering the relevant information from php into WP I still get the above 418 unused error.
Apologies on all the text. I seem to understand the php (WP database) enough to have affected tangible changes on the WP information at fonderhealth.com. That said, I still can’t figure out how to set up the admin/user credentials so that I can log in to Wordpress and really start using the thing. I attempted to change user information, passwords, and everything else within the php user line, but now just clicking on “log in” on fonderhealth.com produces the 418 unused error. i succeeded at failing! so i tossed the db and reinstalled the one click.
Now, I’m able to make changes to WP text through php, but still have no way of accessing or creating credentials so I can login to WP. What am I missing?
Any help and instructions on how to administer wordpress once installing WP one click would be appreciated.
