So I recently bought a domain name and started my own blog (mostlychristian.net), but I couldn’t find themes I liked that made it look good enough, so I decided to go the wordpress.org route. I bought a dreamhost account and tried to install wordpress.org with it. I clicked on “custom installation” and followed some instructions I found on Youtube that told me to place it in mostlychristian.net/blog. I did so, but clicking there just shows my blog saying that page doesn’t exist. Furthermore, I got an email telling me I could log in to “cloverleaf” to work on Wordpress, but this link never works.
I’ve tried doing another installation at mostlychristian.net/blog2, but the results are the same.
I THINK it might work for me to install just at mostlychristian.net, but I’m guessing this will at least overwrite everything I have there, and at worst do that and not work anyway.
Obviously, I really want to keep that domain name, but I’m not sure what to do. Was I just screwed the moment I bought the domain before getting my dreamhost account, or is there a way to start working on a wordpress.org site with that domain name from here?
Thanks in advance!
