Hi. I have a problem with website access. I'm new to wordpress and I can't work out if some of the solutions given to similar sounding issues elsewhere in this forum apply to mine.
I've built a linux based web server on an old pc, installed wordpress on in and started to build a site, and I can access both the site front page, and the admin page from other pcs on my home network by using the ip address followed by /wordpress or /wordpress/wp-admin.
I have a domain name that points at my home ip address, but if I try to access the site by using the domain name, I can get to the admin page using domainname/wordpress/wp-admin, but domainname/wordpress/ results in "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
If somebody could explain what I need to do to fix this I would be grateful. I would be even more grateful if they could explain why it doesn't currently work so that I can understsnd the situation a bit better.
