I'm fairly new to this. I added a subdomain seniors.lainiemacphotography.com through the dreamhost panel. It is saying it's fully hosted, and when I try to access the site, I get the "Upload your website to get started" message.
Errr...what exactly does that mean? I read the article suggested on that page, but I'm still confused. I know enough to sort of get around the FTP server but what files should be added to the directory of the new subdomain? I started copying the folders over from the main domain's directory, but that might not be right.
I also went through the process of creating a multisite on my WP dashboard before reading that that is more for advanced users (which I am clearly not), so I stopped.
Well I just realized I needed to install wordpress right through the dreamhost panel. I feel sheepish...I might have just solved my own problem.
