I have done everything as far as I can see:
1- I'm using a previously owned domain name
2- Created a mysql database
3- Modified and got the wp-config to adhere to spec
4- Completed the 5 minute installation
5- chmod 666 for the .htaccess file
Then I also went and installed a cute theme that I found!
Now- when I click "View Page" to preview what my site will look like, it still shows my old site.
Any thoughts? I have read thru the documentation and also have the WordPress for dummies book in front of me, so I apologize if this is right in my face and I don't see it. Please help. ;)
