I installed the wordpress application. I then tried to access the wp dashboard, but I just keep getting to a failed access attempt (server doesn't exist) page when I click on the admin link on my cPanel.

Did I need to do something to set up my website before installing the wordpress software?
Thank you

Hi quenby,

Is <strong>server doesn't exist</strong> the exact error message that you're receiving?

If that's the case, it could be that your domain name was just registered and <a href=''>still has not propagated</a>. If the domain name was just registered, you may need to wait a few more hours.

You can also use <a href=''>this tool</a> to see if your domain name is routing correctly to <a href=''>our DNS servers</a>.

If you can post an update to your question above with your domain name, we'll be able to look into this further for you.

It's solved. I was a little too impatient.
Thanks for your help!
