Website unchanged by installation of WordPress – possible MySQL problem?
I’m a bit of an IT novice, but usually that’s ok if I follow the instructions and do as I’m told, which is what I think I did when I installed WordPress 2 days ago. (there were a couple of times when the instructions on the MySQL section of the installation differed slightly from what I was seeing on screen, but I seemed to get to the same result in the end – except that in the PHPMyadmin, I have NO PRIVELEDGES in big red letters under the MySQL section?)
However, when I get to the dashboard, and click on “(view site)”, I’m just taken to a blank page, with absolutely nothing on it. I’d like my blog to be the homepage of the domain I’ve registered [www.clearcommunication.ie], so I saved WordPress into the root directory. Yet, if enter the URL into my browser, there’s nothing but the welcome message from my web hosting company.
I’ve tried doing a google search, and a search of this forum, as well as going through the installation instructions again, but I can’t figure out what I’ve done wrong.
My server name is: ns1.hosting365.ie -> 126.96.36.199
The version of MySQL I’m on is: MySQL 4.0.24-standard running on 188.8.131.52
Hope I’ve given you enough information to be able to shed some light on what I should try next?
Many thanks for any help you can provide.
