I’ve had a problem (most likely user error) whilst trying to set up wordpress on a domain.
I’d just set up my account here, asked the person that looks after our domains to point the domain at the dreamhost nameservers, then began the advanced one click install for wordpress.
I went through the process- it seemed to work ok, however when i clicked the link to wp-admin in the ‘Successful install’ email, I got nowhere.
I left this overnight, however when I came back the next day, same result.
(Probably wrongly) I assumed there was an issue and attempted to uninstall wordpress, once using the webpanel and a second time using FTP. When doing it through FTP I was unable to delete one directory folder which was wp-content or something like that.
I got fed up trying and have deleted everything, including the domain from the host. however if I log in by FTP i can still see the directory ad subfolders.
I just want to start from scratch again now, so does anyone have any suggestions. Am I just being too impatient and not allowing time for propagation? How long should I wait after a ‘successful install’ before I can expect to access the wordpress admin?
Sorry for all the questions, but if anyone could give even the smallest bit of advice, I’d be hugely grateful.
