When installed on Bluehost, receive notice that domain needs to be mapped (3 posts)

    When trying to install wordpress on bluehost (my nameservers are pointed at bluehost), I get all the files up -- mySQL database created and data in the config files just like it should be. However, when I go to /wp-admin/install.php, I receive the message that:

    Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please log in and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain.

    From what I can tell, I have to already have a wordpress blog then sign up for domain mapping, but to do that I have to change the nameservers on my domain to point to wordpress. If I do that, though, my domain won't point to bluehost and I won't be able to access the database. Am I doing something wrong here?

    You can check your credentials with Bluehost.

    Is this a new install, or are you moving an existing blog to Bluehost? If you're moving an existing blog, you shouldn't have any need to use the install.php script.
