Can't see WP on temporary url

I installed WordPress to a domain in the wp directory, but I haven't changed the DNS yet because I want to test it.

I found my temporary url and added the two define lines to the wp-config.php file.

When I go to the temporary url, all I see is an inmotion page saying "website coming soon stay tuned."

I'm not sure what's gone wrong, or where I need to go to login to the Wordpress.

Thanks for your help,

Hello Alaskalc,

I checked your account and you have several websites installed. So it took a few minutes to sort it out and figure out what was happening. The Emotionology site is installed on a subfolder, so the path you defined in the wpconfig file is incorrect. I corrected the path, and then used it in a browser and website shows up with no issues. Review the wp-config file that I modified and you'll see the proper path. If you need to login to the Wordpress administrator, make sure that you type in the appropriate path and then put "/wp-admin" at the end in order to bring up the proper login screen.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
