    Hello,
    I'm definitely a n00b, so I appreciate anyone bearing with me.
    I used "Simple Scripts" to install WordPress on my ipage site and received the following email:

    You can use the following information to administer your new site.
    Admin Panel: http://www.addtrips.com/wp-admin
    Admin Username: XXX
    Admin Password: XXX

    Only, when I go to that link, nothing's there but a generic godaddy page. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills! I've re-installed a half dozen times (including different versions), but nothing changes. There's probably something very simple I'm missing, but I have no idea what it could be. I also tried the famous 5 minute manual installation, but couldn't get more than 3 of the installation files to upload. It's a conspiracy I say!

  2. My guess is that you haven't yet set your DNS for the domain name addtrips.com to that of your current hosting provider. Currently your DNS is pointing to GoDaddy's servers. Is GoDaddy hosting your site?

    You need to log into your domain registration control panel and update the DNS (aka name servers) to point to the name servers provided by your host. If you need further help, your domain registrar's and hosting provider's FAQ should be a good resource.
