[resolved] Can't get to new WP login page (8 posts)

    Hi there, I'm new to wp, but have a lot of IT experience. Some background: I had been hosting my blog via blogger with a domain name from godaddy (meandmydiy.com) and transferred my domain hosting to FatCow and installed the WP scripts to the meandmydiy.com/blog subdirectory. I can't seem to get to my wp admin login page. I've tried going to both http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/wp-admin/admin.php and
    http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/wp-login.php, but I only get "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist." I've made sure both pages have 777 permissions. Am I missing something? Thanks so much for any help.

    Hi,

    http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/wp-login.php is correctly showing the WordPress login page for me.

    If you've only recently completed the domain hosting the DNS changes may still be resolving. The "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist" error message supports this theory as I think it is a Blogger error message.

    Can you see the default WordPress content at http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/?

    Hmmm... I did just make all these changes tonight, but I'm still getting that error when I go to http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/wp-login.php. And if by "default WordPress content" you mean my regular blog interface (minus any content) then yes, that's what I see at http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/. What exactly should I be seeing when I get to the actual login page? Any suggestions? Thanks again

    Sounds like it might be DNS issues then.

    Have a look at:
    http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www.cgi/http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/wp-login.php
    and:
    http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www.cgi/http://www.meandmydiy.com/blog/

    This will get around any temporary DNS problems and you'll be able to see if the installation has worked. Probably best to not login through anonymouse.

    Okay, I was definitely able to get to the wp pages from those links you sent me. So I guess the installation worked, but does that mean I just need to wait a bit for the DNS to straighten itself out? Thanks again.

    Yes, the DNS will straighten out over time. It can take a few minutes to a few hours depending on local, ISP and server settings.

    You can help it along by clearing the browser cache.

    I've found restarting the computer and getting a coffee works pretty well too.
