[resolved] WordPress 3.9 Installation problem on Hostgator (6 posts)

    Hello all

    Hi, I took advice from my previous question on this forum and managed to install WP using QuickInstall at HostGator where I am paying for hosting. I have a registered domain name also through Hostgator.
    I have allegedly successfully installed WP...but when I go to my site, I just get the "oops google chrome cant find " and don't get a WP log-in even when I put 'wp-admin' at the end of the URL as advised in HG's help video. Tried reinstalling WP, still the same issue....meaning I still can't use WP at my domain to start creating my blog there.

    I would appreciate your advice very much and please note that I am a newbie and am not familiar with a lot of the lingo here.

    I checked my billing account and it says the name server is ns1.hostgator.com and also my lock status is locked although I understand this is only for domain transfers and shouldn't restrict me from using my blog.

    I installed WP 10 days ago so it shouldn't take that long to propogate.

    Please help.

    What is the domain in question? Is the domain pointed at your hosting server?

    I had the same problem today - until I looked at the address bar and realized that for some reason I was on the 404 page. Removed that part of the address and everything was fine.

    Agreed - a weird problem

    Hey Guys problem solved. I had to change the name server addresses from to ns6209 and ns6210. By default they were ns01 or something like that. I still don't fully understand the reason for this.
