Issues with installation (2 posts)

    I am a super noob at wordpress so i apologize if i am asking simple questions. I normally do not handle websites much but i need to build a wedding website for myself.
    I use a VPS from Linode running Ubuntu 12.04.
    I installed wordpress using the basic apt-get install wordpress and used this guide to move the files to root

    I followed the first half of this guide to the best of my ability
    http://www.onextrapixel.com/2011/07/07/the-ultimate-wordpress-multi-site-network-management-guide/

    All my wordpress files are in the root web dir

    I have two domains registered with GoDaddy that i need to use. So i would like to setup wordpress to work with
    http://www.example1.com
    http://www.example2.com
    The domains are pointed at the IP of my linode VPS

    I have the following issues that i need help on:
    1. when i enter the domain names into browser, i get the default html index page stating "It works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet." I dont know how to bind the wordpress installation to load as default page

    2. I turned on multisite and used it for a little while. But it seems to cannot log into superadmin anymore. I only have one user on the wordpress installation but they reject the password.

    At this point, i havent even been able to look at the actual page.

    I have blown out the vps and reinstalled many times. So i do not mind doing that if someone can help walk me through multi-domain install of wordpress.

    Thanks for your time
