    I have created pages but when I click on the page I get "HTTP 404 Not found". Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Do I need to do something else besides created the page and saving it? Please help.

    Seems like you have set the permalinks on from your admin panel. Permalinks makes your website url SEO friendly. When you set it on, wordpress creates a .htaccess file in your blog root directory. You can create .htaccess from notepad. Just save a file with filename .htaccess and paste the following in it:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    and then upload it to your blog root directory. This will solve the problem.

    I can't seem to find the blog root directory...I did paste it into the permalink section. I also created a notepad file but I don't know where to upload the file...sorry, but any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks!
