    I got domain name and hosting at bluehost and then I installed WP manually. What do I do now to get my blog started? I the admin panel page and it said it was located at http://your-wordpress-url/wp-admin/ what is my WP url? Do I have to do something within bluehost cpanel to control my blog? I'm so confused.

    If you installed WordPress manually, then you would have had to visit your domain (or http://www.sample.com/wp-admin/install.php) to complete the install.

    If you installed WordPress in your web-root folder, public_html, then you should be able to login to your blog's administration at http://www.sample.com/wp-login.php.

    Okay, I obviously didn't install correctly or all the way. I followed the 5 minute install. I did steps 1-4 and maybe messed up on step 5? The last thing I did was upload files in FTP. So, after I upload files I needed to visit http://www.sample.com/wp-admin/install.php? I'm pretty sure I didn't do that. So, my next step is to type that http://www.myurl.com/wp-admin/install.php into the browser?
