I can't seem to publish my page via Wordpress. What am I doing wrong?

I started my site today and have never done anything like this before. I have installed Wordpress, chosen a theme, and have even seen previews of my page, but when I put in my website it isn't up. Did I miss a step?

Hello Karlee,

Thank you for your question. I looked at your Wordpress and it was installed successfully, but it was installed in a directory called: wp

This means your Wordpress site can be accessed at: (be sure to use your actual domain name)

If you want to access the site on: without the /wp, you can move your installation to the root folder, here is a guide on how to accomplish that.

Since it is a new website, it may be easier to uninstall Wordpress, then reinstall using Softaculous, and leave the "In Directory " option blank.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
