Hello all. I'm having a very difficult time trying to get my blog up and running in my hosting account, and I'm hoping some wonderful, awesome person can help me out!
I have had a free blog over at wordpress.com for about a year now, and am attempting to move over to wordpress.org to have access to plugins and a wider range of abilities not offered with a free blog.
So far I have purchased and mapped a domain, purchased hosting and downloaded the WordPress application to my hosting account. At the moment I am using Godaddy, and will continue to use it until my hosting plan runs out (a year or so...). I'm undecided as to where or even IF I'll switch, but this point is irrelevant at the moment.
I think I have also changed my name servers to point to WordPress.
Here is where I'm stuck - How the heck do I get my blog to be up and running in my hosting so I can access plugins? Right now my dashboard is the same as the wordpress.com dashboard. Am I supposed to upload something into a folder in my hosting account for WordPress? Do I need to change something in my DNS? I'm not very technical, but hopefully someone can help me through this.
I will be forever grateful to any help. This is too frustrating!
