I'm at a total loss for how to proceed. I just registered a new domain (FontyPython.com) with HostGator and originally set my WP install up via Fantastico De Luxe in my root. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary during the process, but when trying to go to my WP login screen, I receive an "Oops! Google Chrome could not find fontypython.com" I checked to be sure, and have a database set up in MySQL.
So I uninstalled it and tried the Famous 5 minute installation. Same thing. So I uninstalled it again. And tried the few other tricks I know to manually set up WP on a site. Nothing (except that same error message). I'm no back-end expert, so I'm afraid more poking around will only make matters worse. I looked around the Forums and nothing seemed similar to my problem. I'm sure it's something small and probably user-error, but what and how? For the life of me I can't figure it out.
I set up a subdomain with WP on that same account, and it works fine. I can't figure out where to begin or what to do now to install WP on this root site though.
And ideas or help is immensely appreciated!
