Installation error? (8 posts)

    I am new to wordpress and have a problem, which I'm sure is simple but...
    I have a hosting account which meets all the WordPress requirements. I auto installed WordPress 3.2.1 via Fantastico deluxe but although my dashboard tells me a page/post has been published, when I click 'View site' I keep getting the hosting sites default index.html page - This site is under construction etc etc. Has something been installed incorrectly or do I have to do something else to publish WordPress?

    FTP into your site (or use whatever file management application your host provides) and delete or rename the index.html file in the root folder of your domain.

    Thanks esmi. I tried renaming the index.html file in the root directory but the problem is still there. Do I need to set a page or a post up as index.html in WordPress perhaps, if so how? or should WordPress do it automatically?

    I got it installed. I was thinking Fantastico would install the database. It must not. I manually created a sql database. After this I used Fantastico to install WP with no errors.

    Fantastico if set up properly will create the database, the database user, and set all the privileges. You should check how you've set up Fantastico on your server.
