Support » Fixing WordPress » 1and1 domain linked up with WP but now displaying text only page! help!

  • I am completely new to this and failing terribly.

    take a look at my problem –

    I bought a domain from 1and1 and followed a tutorial online to hook my domain up with wordpress. this seemed to work out well until i got in to my wordpress dashboard, when i left the dashboard and tried to view my site i got to this

    its just text and a mess! i have no idea why or how or who to contact or help me, i need at least my front page up and runnign with links and info asap and i can get my head around it…. have searched the forums but am unaware of what phrases i should be searching as i am a complete newbie.

    this is embarrassing. i know i shouldnt even be entering /wordpress after ym site but when i rang the 1and1 helpline this is the only way i could access my site, then i did, now i cant.

    please some one give me a little guidance or advice

    thank you!

    Try re-installing WordPress in the root of your domain.

    Just delete the files in the wordpress folder on your site. Then either empty the exiting database or just delete it and set up a new one. Then re-install WordPress in your root domain – ie upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress folder (but not the folder itself) into the root directory (folder) of your web server. Then run the install as previously and you should be fine.
