I downloaded Wordpress as recommended for a beginner. BUT I got another blog. When I followed the tutorial I got a link on my existing blog. I want to put something on my domain. I want to use my domain name. I still have the check back message, unless I go to wordpress, then it goes to a blog!

WordPress makes great blogs. I want a site that comes up when you go to I do not want another blog that you get to through I already have a blog hosted by wordpress.

Hi LeslyC5,

When I visit your website, I do see the <strong>Website Coming Soon! Stay Tuned</strong> message.

When I go to <i></i>/wp, I do see your WordPress website. I assume that you want to go to <i></i> <strong>instead of</strong> <i></i>/wp to see your blog?

<strong>If this is so, you'll want to do the following:</strong>
1. <a href='' target='_blank'>Uninstall the blog</a> you have at <i></i>/wp
2. <a href='' target='_blank'>Install WordPress</a> again, but this time leave the <strong>In Directory</strong> setting blank. Most likely WordPress was installed at <i></i>/wp because <strong>wp</strong> was entered as the <i>In Directory</i> setting.

I hope this helps answer you question. If it doesn't, or you have any follow up questions, feel free to post a comment at the bottom of this page, and I'll be more than happy to assist further.
