Unable to get to Dashboard – wp_admin file in wrong location?

    After installing WP, I’m stuck. I cannot access wp_admin. Here are the highlights…

    From cPanel, I chose to install via Fantastico, and perhaps I missed something in the instructions & video (which were for WP 2.7, alas).

    When I was done, I clicked on the Visit Site link. At the bottom of my browser I see this:

    http://creativelynostalgic.com

    Of course, the site displays a generic message telling visitors that the domain was recently purchased, and the site is being created for the domain, etc.

    When I use FileMagager to look at my home dir, and see this:

    (/home/lmiller)
    access-logs
    etc
    mail
    public_ftp
    public_html
    tmp
    www

    I see the wp_admin folder in two places: in the public_html & www subdirectories
    In both cases, the folders look like this:
    wp_admin
    css
    images
    includes
    js
    maint
    network
    user

    So it looks like the wp-admin files are installed in the wrong place perhaps. This is what I get for trying to do too much in one evening. Kind of embarrassing, since part of my day job is supporting a web application.

    Any advice onfixing this is appreciated.
    Thanks
