I have a non-WP site at Host A. I just installed WP at Host B and want to get the new site all set up before I redirect the DNS servers to the new IP address and cancel the Host A account running the old site.
But when I try to log in to my WP admin page using the IP address, for example:
It redirects to this URL:
Because that non-WP site has no such directory structure, I get the 404 error.
How do I log in to my new site using the IP address that Host B provided me, without being redirected to the old site at Host A?
Note that this URL works fine:
When I go there, I see the plain-vanilla default home page that the installer initially creates. So I can go to 123.456.76.90/wp/ but not to 123.456.76.90/wp/wp-admin/.
(By the way, I installed using Fantastico. My Host B is Site5.)
Am I doing something wrong?
