Today I went to WordPress.org and downloaded WordPress. I’m trying to follow the directions in order to host my blog on ScrantonDesign.com so I can install some plugins and update the CSS. I’m just very confused. I’m not sure if I needed to purchase the Domain Mapping at all.
Through my host (GoDaddy) I created a database for my blog. I’ve also input all this information into the wpconfig.php as explained in this document: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
Now I’m trying to go to http://scrantondesign.com/wp-admin/install.php so that I can complete the installation of my blog. However, instead of the screen popping up so I can install, its redirecting me to http://bullzeyedesign.wordpress.com/wp-admin/install.php
Do you know what I’m doing wrong? How can I get my blog hosted on ScrantonDesign.com without any forwarding? I had my nameservers as NS1.Wordpress.com, NS2.Wordpress.com, and NS3.Wordpress.com as it told me to do when I signed up for the domain mapping. I thought this may be the problem so I changed them back to the nameservers that GoDaddy gave me and it’s still not working.
Thanks in advance for your help.
