    im on a mac, my hosting site is hostgator, im having trouble previewing any themes in my wordpress, and how do i upload my wordpress site to my host site, uses cpanel

  2. I'm not familiar with hostgator, but they may have a 1-click install for WordPress installation. Just check your Cpanel.

    When you registered for hosting, they would have provided you with FTP info. I would use that instead of Cpanel for installing, if they don't have a one-click install.

    Have a look at the installation instructions. - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Hostgator has fantastico which is a program in your cPanel that offers 3 click installation of WordPress on your domain.

    Also I don't understand what you are trying to do really. Do you have WP installed? How are you trying to view your themes?

    Activate the theme and then look at on your site. Does that work?

    WP does not look to be installed properly on that domain.

    Check Settings > General

    In the 2 places where the URL is do you have http://euphoriapresentsinc.com/admin/?

    Is that where you want it or do you want it on http://euphoriapresentsinc.com/ ?

    I would recommend just deleting WP in cPanel from the same menu you made it. Then installing it without the /admin/ in the URL.

    No and it can be a plugin or theme.

    Deactivate all your plugins. Swap the theme back to default twenty twelve and activate it.

    FYI - I am going to bed, good luck. :)
