    It looks like either the files are gone, or you installed them into the wrong directory.

    The error at noovomedia.com/wp-admin/ and noovomedia.com/wp-login.php is "The system cannot find the file specified."

    This means that noovomedia.com/wp-admin/ and noovomedia.com/wp-login.php do not exist, suggesting that these and the rest of the files were not uploaded to the correct location.

    If you're installing manually, follow this guide:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Upload the contents of the "wordpress" folder to your root directory (this varies between hosting providers, but it's usually /public_html/, /public/, /html/, /web/, or /www/).

    It seems that Fantastico hasn't installed all the necessary files.

    Try installing it again. If that doesn't work ask your webhost.

    I've done that . SO I guess I have to install WordPress manually to get all the neccesary files ?

    There must be something wrong with your hosting provider's Fantastico. I guess a manual installation is your only other option.

    Would the name only being registered a few hours ago have any effect?

    OOps! I made a grave mistake. It's a hosting issue but it's been resolved so I'll wait till propagation period is over . you can close this thread now.
