[resolved] Logging in to my wordpress blog takes me back to wordpress.com??? (9 posts)

    I feel like giving up at this point, I've been trying to find a solution for days but it wont work. After talking to the team at bluehost numerous times, this is my situation.
    I had a worldpress.com blog and domain, I bought a hosting spot. I transferred my DNS, I installed wordpress at my hosting site.
    At bluehosts end everything is correct, they can log into my wordpress site and the links work as they shoulf. My friends in several different countries search for my blog and find a epthy wordpress site (my "New" blog). However when I try to log in, it takes me back to wordpress.com.
    Even in the e-mails I got from worldpress, with the admin name and password, the link takes me right back to my own blog. No one else can find it when they search from it, but I can. Not only that, but I can edit settings, change themes, and it shows up when I go to my domain site.
    What I have done thus far:
    Cleared caches and cookies, re-set router, changed router, re-stored computer settings, re-installed wordpress numerous times.
    when I got to http://www.visualisa.com it does not take me to my new wordpress site, it takes me to my wordpress.com site. What can I do to fix this?

    I can't even FIND my wordpress site, or log in, because it takes me back to my old blog

    I see a WordPress.org site. When did you change the DNS? It might take up to 72 hours to propagate fully.

  4. It works for me too. Are you using a Windows PC? Try opening a command prompt and run this command:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    Then clear your browsers cache and cookies and try your site again.

    Yes I already did that before and it didn't help. But now I tried installing wordpress.com and it actually worked! But I can't import my old blog, install themes or pugins. I did however manage to do a "test" post that according to my friends show up when they search for the blog. But I can't touch anything else. When trying to import the wordpress.com blog, it just says "Sorry, there has been an error.
    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home4/visualo8/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2013/02." I tried numerous times

    That's a separate issue regarding how file permissions are configured on your server. Start a new thread for this.
