    Hello,

    I have tried to install wordpress.org on my web host, and it says it was successful, but when I type my domain/wp-admin it doesn't connect to it.

    Any suggestionS?

    Hi bianca,

    I'm sorry you're having trouble with your installation. I would suggest double checking your Site URL:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    Also, what happens when you go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin? Can you give us a link to your site?

    Thanks!

    yes, the link of my website is http://www.biancaturner.co.uk.

    When I go to biancaturner.co.uk/wp-admin, the browser can't find it.

    I installed it with 'fantastico' inside my web host, and defined the site url there, therefore I don't know how to use codex to change the site url.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi bianca,

    While researching this, I found that your domain is still currently pointed to wordpress.com Nameservers:

    http://www.iptools.com/dnstools.php?tool=whois&user_data=biancaturner.co.uk&submit=Go

    You can contact your registrar to point your domain to your new web host's Nameservers and then allow 4-24 hours for DNS to propagate.

    Good luck with your new site!
