[resolved] [closed] 404 error when trying to install WP on Laughing Squid host (4 posts)

    When trying to acces http://samverhaert.com/wp-admin/install.php I get a NOT FOUND-error.

    I followed the instructions on https://laughingsquid.us/faq/wordpress/install/.

    -Create a MySQL database for your WordPress install
    -Configure WordPress with your MySQL database details
    -Upload all of the WordPress core files to your website’s public directory (samverhaert.com/web/content). (I used Filezilla)
    -Change your domain name servers to point to the cloud hosting.
    -Rename the default index.html file so that the index.php file for WordPress can resolve by default.

    I read changing the DNS server could take up to 48h (it's been 24h now). Could that be the problem? However, yesterday, it didn't work either to install WP, but I landed on my Laughing Squid account-page, and not on the 404 NOT FOUND-page.

    Any suggestions? Thank you!!!

    Hi, more than 48 hours have passed since I changed the DNS server name. But I still can not enter http://samverhaert.com/wp-admin/install.php.
