    Hello, apologies if this is a repeat of an issue already solved, I did search but couldn't find anything!

    I've uploaded wordpress to my database, and it is stored in:

    http://www.ideometer.co.uk/web/content/

    So I'm assuming to install, I need to enter this into the browser.

    http://www.ideometer.co.uk/web/content/wp-admin/install.php

    The problem is that whenever I try to do this, I'm redirected to the company website that provided my domain and not the WordPress installation window. I'm guessing the address must be wrong or something simple like that, but I can't figure it out -.- any suggestions?

    I doubt that you uploaded wordpress to your database, since those are two different things.

    I am wondering whether the /web/content/ folders are an internal server path and so your site should really be accessible at ideometer.co.uk.

    Have you tried http://www.ideometer.co.uk/wp-admin/install.php ...?

    Hm. I just tried that and got redirected to http://81.21.76.62/ideometer.co.uk/index.html. I would check with your web host to see what the issue is.
