Hi guys, I am very new to web hosting and am teaching myself as I go. I've been using a tutorial found in a magazine, I'm trying to upload Wordpress.
In the SQL settings in the file I modified the database name, database username, database password, and database host according to the information located in the SQL settings under the Goodies tab on Dreamhost. The only two fields left untouch in the SQL settings are these:
/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
/** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
since I didn't see anything relating to these under the Dreamhost SQL section I left them untouched.
I've successfully connected to my website via the program FileZilla and have successfully transferred the Wordpress file from my local site (computer) to my remote site (the cloud).
However whenever I go to check my domain name, the Wordpress login screen is not there. Instead I'm left with the same "coming soon" screen that pops up whenever you first host a domain name under Dreamhost.
