I've changed the name servers for the domain to point to my new host and server, and cancelled the domain mapping within the dashboard of http://gemmafreeman.wordpress.com.
Perhaps I have to be patient and wait a few hours, but something is going wrong on the wordpress.com side...
I've installed all the files etc to my root folder by FTP, but before I can even check things are ok by heading to http://gemma-freeman.com/wp-admin/install.php, I keep being redirected to a wordpress.com page inviting me to set up a new free blog - even when not signed in - asking if I'd like to visit my old blog:
i.e. "Get your own WordPress.com account in seconds
Fill out this one-step form and you’ll be blogging seconds later!
Did you mean to visit any of these blogs:
gemmafreeman.wordpress.com — Gemma Freeman"
I can't figure out what else I need to do and it's very frustrating.... can anyone help?
