    So I wanted to change my pubs website across to wordpress to make it much easier for others to update (it was just using static html before).

    I tried installing wordpress and it came up with a few errors. so I decided to clear everything from my hosting account. I have hosting set up with GoDaddy, i have 4 domain names, of which, one is pointing to hosting elsewhere.

    I deleted all of the databases, wordpress installs that I could find except for (http://wigstonmethodistchurch.org.uk) as that still needed to be used.

    I then did a fresh wordpress install on two domains;

    1) http://thisisdansmith.co.uk/
    2) http://thenavigationatkilbybridge.co.uk/

    For some reason, the first one has worked perfectly, and the second one just displays as a text list.

    I’m out of ideas and any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The site you’re showing is a WIX site, not a WordPress site.

    Hi Dan,

    If you’re still struggling with your install for The Navigation Inn site, you may need to check your DNS settings. Those are the settings that point your domain to a certain place/host. When you set up your Wix site, you had to point your site to Wix’s name servers. Now that you want to switch to a WordPress site, you’ll need to remove those servers (as you longer wish to use Wix) and point the site back to your regular web host (in this case, GoDaddy).

    Here is GoDaddy’s guide to setting up name servers on their hosting using cPanel:

    Depending on your hosting (shared vs dedicated, etc) package, you may have to dig a bit further for the appropriate instructions, but this may get you started.

    I hope this helps!
