Last year, I signed up for a site on wordpress.com.
The site name goes to: myfullname.worpress.com
I never made an entry. The site exists. Probably part of filling out the form.
Now, I am interested in buckling down and creating a self-hosted site.
Going through the tutorial on lynda.com. It’s great.
I’ve created ftp and mysql accounts through bluehost.
I’ve signed up with bluehost with new web address name: myfullname.com
I’ve downloaded the latest wordpress.
I’m using ClassicFTP
I’m on a Intel Core 2 Duo iMac using OS 10.7.4
I’m following the Lynda.com tutorial for self-hosted sites.
I uploaded wordpress to the ftp site.
Using my browser (having cleared the cache and cookies), I go to myfullname.com and it takes me to myfullname.wordpress.com
I can’t understand this.
I imagine I’ll get responses telling me I have to go through the motions to transfer my blog- and I’ve read through the directions and followed them, BUT
There is only the one landing page of the myfullname.wordpress.com
With no content to transfer.
how do i get to myfullname.com to set up my new site?
Problems arise when I try to get to my new site
