    I'm a total rookie at this but was following a you tube video on building my own website and everything went well up until I installed wordpress... I pointed my domain from network solutions to my web hosting package at hostgator.... When I type http://syncitsolutions.com/wp-admin it just takes me to the base wordpress page it created for me but I DON'T get a log in to log into WP. Any ideas?

    I've uninstalled and re-installed twice (by someones recommendation) and it still isn't working... Just takes me to the sample page provided by wordpress.

    How long ago did you set up hosting?

    It looks like your dns hasn't propogated yet.

    After you uploaded all of your wordpress files with your db info in config.php, when you initially went to your site, did you get the default wordpress install screen?

    you can either keep trying to go to syncitsolutions.com and wait until
    you get the install screen (which could be a few hours).

    Or you can add the following to your hosts file:
    174.120.31.194 syncitsolutions.com

    then try again to go to your wp-admin page.

    I pointed my DNS days ago... Sometime last week.

    "After you uploaded all of your wordpress files with your db info in config.php, when you initially went to your site, did you get the default wordpress install screen?"

    I did the "quick install"... All I did was clicked the wordpress, clicked install, put in my domain in the box, entered host admin name, my name, and clicked install.... Should I have done something more?

    "Or you can add the following to your hosts file:
    174.120.31.194 syncitsolutions.com"

    This is what I have already done..... Since I have mail with a different host, I just edited the A records to this.....

    Host TTL Numeric IP
    www 7200 174.120.31.194
    @ (None) 7200 174.120.31.194
    * (All Others) 7200 174.120.31.194

    If you did it days ago, that's not the issue :-)

    Check with your host to resolve this, as it doesn't appear to be a wordpress issue.

    mxtoolbox.com is resolving your site correctly, but the page that displays when you type in the url is the generic 404 search page.

    web hosting or DNS hosting? They are 2 different ones. Network solutions for DNS and H0stgator for web hosting.

    mxtoolbox.com is pointing to a server on hostgator, so call hostgator.com and have them look into it.

    After you do that, please come back here and post the update.

    Thanks.

    chatted with Hostgator and they showed that I was pointed to a wrong address.... I changed the A record in DNS and waiting for it to propagate. Thanks again for the help. I told ya I was a rookie:)
