It seems I was able to successful install wordpress initially (I was able to see the default wordpress display when I visited my site), but I saw that I had uploaded my files into a subdirectory of the actual directory I wanted them to be in, so I decided to reinstall and upload my files again (I hadn't actually put anything on my site yet, so I wasn't worried about losing data). I deleted the files and the database and started the install from scratch, but now all I see when I visit my site is what I saw before I installed wordpress the first time ("This domain is under construction and will be available soon.").
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? I tried this process multiple times, but it still doesn't seem to be taking. I also looked through the forum for a relevant thread, but couldn't find any. FYI, my FTP client is cpanel.
Thanks very much!
