    Is this your URL?

    http://www.backdoortobroadway.com/wp-login.php

    What do you get at that page?

    Yes, that’s the URL. When I click on it, the page that pops up is “Server Not Found”

    I’m a little bit confused here — you said you installed WP on your computer, but that’s not how WP works unless you are working on a site on your local computer (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Installing_WordPress_on_your_own_Computer ). But a site there is not connected in any way to a site hosted on a server (i.e. your new site on ipage). So there aren’t any settings on your local computer- you just access your site using your browser – is that what you are doing? If the problem only happens on one computer, yes, it’s an issue with your laptop, local network or perhaps your ISP.

    I installed it through ipage. But I can’t access it using the internet on my laptop.

    But you CAN access it on other computers? If that’s the case, it’s not a WordPress problem. Generally, it would be due to caching, cookies, or something in your network connection. Can you try taking your laptop to another location – to help narrow down the issue? Or perhaps delete and reinstall a browser entirely?

    It may be your DNS cache. Can you start a command prompt (in Windows 8? I really need to find out…) and type in this command:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    If that’s it then you should be able to reach that server after that.

    I think it has to do with my internet provider. It didn’t work on my laptop until I went to Starbucks and used their wireless. Also my roommate tried it on her laptop and our internet provider and it didn’t work. And it is Windows 8.

    I use AT&T
