After installing WordPress on LunarPages (3 posts)

    I recently purchased my domain name and have used CPannel to install wordpress (through the "Fantastico" icon). How do I access the wordpress software to setup my blog?

    you go to where you installed in your browser.

    http://www.mydomainname.com

    http://www.mydomainname.com/whereeveryourinstalled-to/

    Right now, the link in your profile is going to the lunarpages site -- which tells me that the DNS for your site hasn't propagated.

    I KNOW, having used lunarpages before, that they send you an email that provides you with a url to use to access your site while the DNS is still propagating.

    Use that URL to see your blog. Wou will NOT be able to administer your wordpress blog using that url. So, you're simply stuck waiting. Complete DNS propagation can take up to 36 hours.

    I bought my domain from Lunarpages so the propogation was already finished for me. Thank you though, I wouldn't have thought to check that.
    While i'm at it, how can I get the page http://www.domain.com/whereitsinstalled to point to simply http://www.domain.com?
