    Did your host install WordPress for you? It would seem they did not. You might want to try contacting them for more information in case they gave you the wrong link for logging in.

    You need to edit your wp-config.php file to ensure that it has the correct database connection details.

    it does according to everything i have

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', '**8888');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '******');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    You'll have to access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel) and manually change the siteurl and home values to http://www.supergeek.com.au
