  • Resolved roger49


    I assume its 3.4, but do not really know. I was sent a password saying. “your installation is ready”.Ive copied it into the login but my website is not accessed. I have been told to add /wp-admin after my domain name. Basically I am lost!! I have a domain name already and I am with hostgator already .Can anyone help??

  • Can you post your site URL?

    I hope this is what you are asking for.Thanks for the reply Can you tell me how to create this site using wordpress?

    Sorry htp:// not as above

    Please wait. I will have a look at it and tell you.

    u need to add wp-admin in yr database. u know where your hosting. example php myadmin or cpanel. u need to go to the database, add wp-admin there

    Check your domain name’s spelling. I do not find it anywhere. With which domain registrar/ hosting company are you registered?

    Iam hosted with hostgator and its got spelling wrong first time but corrected it. What do you say about rameshhelps advice above?? How do I get to data base?

    If you have already bought hosting at Hostgator, you can sign in there and setup your blog/site if you have not done so. If you have problems, you can use their CHAT facility, or otherwise ask for support. For setting up WP, database etc., read the instructions. If you do not find them, I can post the links for you.

    About the advice of rameshhelps, I cannot say anything because I do not understand what he writes, or rather I am a bit confused. So, take your own decision.

    And so far, I could not understand what your real problem is because if you bought the domain (from whom) and hosting, you can easily setup your blog. In your first post also, it is not clear as to what you did and what you lost.

    Look HERE. Is it NOT misleading? Where do you find Hostgator as you say?

    You can log into your administration area here:

    If you’re unable to log in with the username & password you have, click the “lost your password” link on that screen and you’ll be sent an email with a new password.

    You shouldn’t need to directly access your database except in special cases, but the above login will allow you to manage your site, plugins, themes, widgets, users, etc.


    The link provided by you gets redirected to and the following error message appears:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /wp-login.php was not found on this server.

    Please try and see. Yesterday I tried to help roger49 in many ways. There seems to be a lot of problems, including his domain name. Please try (though I have not tried now).

    How odd – I don’t get redirected from this end, I get a proper WP login page. Something strange must be going on. I guess we’ll wait and see if the OP comes back with any additional feedback.

    Well I made it eventually, Ive got to my dashboard and have actually seen my own site . I had to go back to nameboy and replace the servernames with what was there. hostgater chat gave me the help I needed. I have my own user name and password for my site. SO THANKS FOR ALL THE CONCERN AND HELP FOLKS ITS ALL A BIT INTIMIDATING FOR A NEWBIE!
    Lastly will I need to get back to at all via another route via yet another password or am I just wasting my time. The dashboard seems self contained enough .Accessing my jetpack (Whatever that is) seems to be another challenge that awaits me although is it essential right now? I have sent for another password with my user name and nothing has come back via my email. Another mystery for me to understand. Thanks for your patience but you are helping!

    You are welcome! Mark the topic as resolved, if you solved your problem.
