WordPress Installation problem on Dreamhost (11 posts)

    Hi-

    I am starting to build my first website and I just installed WordPress 3.3.1 to my domain http://www.tangledantlers.com through Dreamhost. I just received the email that says "Success installing WordPress on your site!" with a set of instructions prompting me to creating an admin user, read the readme file, etc... but when I click on all the links through this email I get an error message each time. The error 404 message comes up with a Google logo but I cancelled my Google Apps account and all of that earlier today. Could it just be taking a while to process the Google cancellation or does it have nothing to do with that? Why am I getting these error messages?
    thanks!

    I tried it now and it's working
    Visit your site again or use a different browser, at this point you can create the admin user so it's really not safe to post the link right now, you ar an admin should edit this fast !!!

    Thanks for your reply. I see that it's working now, but it won't accept any of my user names or passwords.

    Wow some people are just pathetic if that is the case. So in my domain host would I go to manage my installs and delete all info? Then download the install again? Thanks for the advice, I have some basic Site5, Wiki, and html experience, but just haven't built my own website before.

    Did you install WordPress yourself?

    Yes. One of the pages that came up said to re-install WordPress I must clear my databases first. On my domain host I can see that a weird user name was created (by someone else), so I deleted that database and I'm waiting for the changes to take affect

    If you originally installed WP yourself, then no one tampered with your password. You probably mis-remembered your login details.

    FYI, I have installed several WP sites in Dreamhost and it takes longer for it to actually happen than the email notice suggests. So that's what happened with your original problem.
