Installed WP but admin not showing up (13 posts)

    I went through the easy install and have waited the 72 hours but I can't get to the screen to login. It just says "can't be found."

    I've used WP before, but someone else did all of this part so I'm not sure what I did wrong.

    I get "Server not found"

    Talk to your webhost about this.

    useful codex:

    Check your DNS Server setting in your Domain host..

    note the dns server, whether it is the same of dns server settings are entered in the domain host with dns server hosting setting?

    Your nameservers are registered for use with WordPress.com:

    WordPress.com does not require any type of installation. If you want to use the self hosted version of WordPress you will need a hosting account to use with your registered domain name.

    Also, when you make changes to DNS your host may tell you it will take 72 hours to propagate, and that may have been true 15 or 20 years ago. But today, DNS changes/settings are much faster and should only take about 4 hours to propagate.

    @ketanco - if you need help, you need to start your own thread.

    @keithdriscoll I changed the nameservers with my host to be .org but it still isn't working. Do I need to change them somewhere else too?

    They need to be set to your HOSTING company - WordPress.ORG is not hosting your site.

    Who are you paying for hosting?

    Your nameservers need to match your webhost's nameservers. You would find out what your nameservers should be by contacting your web host :)

    To use the self hosted WordPress (wordpress.org) you need to have a web hosting service such as GoDaddy, BlueHost, etc. You could also use wordpress.com but I think they charge a small fee to use your own domain name.
