I'm brandnew to the self-hosted blogworld. I'm an absolute beginner and don't know much about anything. I decided to use WordPress.org because I heard it's easy even for beginners.
Or so I thought.
I've spent the last 8 hours trying to figure out this problem by myself and googling like crazy, but I have to give up now and really hope that somebody here can help me.
I use ipage as my hoster.
I installed WordPress there. You have to use a subdomain while installing such as http://www.example.com/blog.
Apparently they say you can change that later and they even have a tutorial on what to do.
Once I get rid of the /blog part in my WordPress panel I get an error message once I hit the "save" button.
Then when I create a domain pointer, nothing really happens.
My blog doesn't show up anymore and I cannot access the wordpress panel anymore either.
I'm sorry if my description isn't very clear. I'm tired and annoyed to no end and shortly before giving it up.
I really hope somebody can help me :(
