    Hello everyone. This is my first attempt at using wordpress for our photography site. I installed wordpress to the server, (my provider is godaddy).
    Everything says the WP was installed successfully, but the wp-admin page just goes to the normal parking page for the site.

    Am I a complete moron and missing something, or should this url be opening so I can set up my site?

    Thanks, and sorry if this is a simple user error.

    Feeling a bit intimidated.

    I had this happen once long ago, so I can't remember for sure, but I believe that there was an .html file in the root directory. I don't remember the exact name, but that file was the one that loaded the GoDaddy default page. Once I deleted that file, the site worked.

    GoDaddy support should be able to help with this.

    Can you paste your site URL here, I can tell you after seeing the site.
