    Hi guys,

    I bought a domain which I forwarded to my hosting. Now the domain forwarding works but I have no clue how to get WP installed from there.

    I have an Amazon ec2 server running on 50.19.100.121
    i have now 3 domains running on that ip, I have now added the 4th and created a subdirectory on the ftp but how do I move from here.
    (already created database in phpmyadmin)

    so basically I want to install wordpress on http://www.idea-matic.pl

    I need help with it since my wordpress guru is on vacation.

    If you created the database on the right server, then you just need to install WordPress into the subdirectory you've created. This should be able to outline the steps for you: Installing WordPress

    Yes I did, I have also moved the wordpress installation into that sub-folder which I created on the FTP but when I access the site I get an 404 error instead of the config installation.

    on the ftp i have now 4 installations of WP
    the main is in the root.
    then i have 3 subfolders DE /TR / PL
    PL is the new one which I just created.
    i think the problem is how can i get the domain http://www.idea-matic.pl to recognize that the installation is in the PL folder

    Oh, sure. Your hosting and/or domain name registrar providers should be able to give you instructions specific to your account for forwarding the DNS to the right place.
