I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around web building and using wordpress and so far no luck! I’m new at this so I need all the help I can get.
I use DreamHost and FireFTP.
I’m stuck at step 5! After I uploaded all of the wordpress files into a subdirectory the next step says to go to http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php (with my domain name of course) and all it gives me is the “Domain not found” page over and over.
I’ve created a database with DreamHost and plugged in what I believe is the correct information in the wp-config.php file (as instructed in step 3). I tried it several times, each time clearing the files from the subdirectory and reinstalling it. I also deleted all of the wordpress files from my Mac and downloaded it again, this time not changing the config files like step 3 suggested. It still didn’t work! I’ve been looking up video tutorials on how to do this and followed them perfectly, only to face the dreaded “Domain not found” every time I thought I got it right.
I’m getting pretty frustrated with this whole thing. I only have a 2 week free trial with DreamHost and I’m ready to cancel with them if I can’t even get through the first five steps of installing wordpress. I really hope you guys can help me through this! I couldn’t find a post with this problem (unless it’s many pages back).
