Wordpress install doesn't run


#1

Hi,

I have an account on Wordpress.com and am now hosting it on DH. I have installed Wordpress via One Click, did the wp-config.php file thing, etc. But when I go to translateinquebeccity.com/wp-admin/install.php, it says the page is not found.

What am I doing wrong? I don’t know a whole lot about this kind of computer stuff so I’m really tearing my hair out. Any help would be appreciated!!

The domain translateinquebeccity.com is currently registered through Automattic and pointed to wordpress.com. You will need to get access to the domain registration and point it to DreamHost’s nameservers for an install here to show up.

THANK YOU, Andrew F, I have made the change. I’ll let you know if it works!

FWI, you’ll still have access to your wp.com site afterwards, so you can export your content to translateinquebeccity once the DNS is moved :slight_smile:
