Installed WP, cant see Dashboard but not website (5 posts)

    Hi

    I recently purchased shared hosting and a domain (harlequinvintage.com) from 1&1 internet.

    I installed word press and it appeared to install fine. I can log in to the WordPress dashboard and make changes to themes and everything else. The problem is I can't view the website. It displays the domain parking page.

    I'm pretty sure the domain has fully propagated as I can view the following page - http://www.harlequinvintage.com/readme.html.

    To my uneducated eye - it seems to be something to do with php scripts but I'm guessing

    I'd be grateful for any help.

    Many thanks,

    Simon

    FTP into your site (or whatever file management application your host provides) & delete the index.html file in your domain's root web folder.

    Try navigating to your site again. It's working for me now.

    Yeah - I can see it now.

    I didn't do anything to fix it - maybe a propagation issue?

    Thanks for your help.
