Greying out


#1

Hi,

I have just signed up for this account. On the main screen in the control panel, most things are greyed out, except for Home and Support. Why is this? I want to get into my account and get my hosting set up!!

It would appear that the account has not been set up/is waiting approval.

Just to be sure go here https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=home.accounts& and make sure you are actually signed up for a plan.

The link just takes me to the main page. Actually, when I said the sections under home aren’t greyed out, the sections entitled “Account Summary” and “Account Privileges” ARE greyed out. I haven’t signed up for hosting yet, but I actually can’t.

I guess you have only signed up for a Web ID. You’ll need to actually sign up for a hosting account perhaps from here:

Thank you so much! This worked. But I’m not sure why there wasn’t a link to this from the panel. I tried every single link, none of them worked. (they work now though, by the way)
