Hi, I’m a friend of the owner of a domain at dreamhost (thenolarundown.com) he signed up with. He gave me access to his account to figure out how to install wordpress and then I’d teach him how to go about that and getting his blog/website rolling.
I’ve been trying since yesterday to get wordpress to work, and I’ve had problems getting it to work.
Here’s what I’ve done:
- I did the one-click install of wordpress
- I tried accessing the website listed in the email after installing “http://www.thenolarundown.com/wp-admin/install.php” and the website gave me a 404 error. And now it isn’t even loading the page at all.
I don’t understand what else to do to get wordpress to work. I tried accessing the ftp, but the ftp link in the email doesn’t work. It said the ftp link is yourdomainname.com, but when trying to load that in FileZilla, with port 22 and my friend’s original username, it doesn’t work and said “authentication failed”.
I tried using a different username and with a different ftp link “ps162165.dreamhostps.com” and it connected, but I couldn’t find the wordpress folder and could not upload into the home directory, except into the username’s directory.
Does anyone know what the issue is and what to do to resolve this problem with installing wordpress?
