Install wordpress
Hi,

I bought a domain name and have since pointed the nameserver to inmotionhosting, added an "add-on domain" in cpanel and then pointed the directory for the new domain name to public_html/my.new.domain

I have just installed wordpress in the wordpress subfolder successfully, but whenever I tried to load the page (ie. http://www.my.new.domain/wordpress), it just gives me an Error 404. Am I missing any steps?

Thanks for the help!

Hello and thanks for contacting us. You can install WordPress with Softaculous or manually.

Hello seoatoz,

This is an update for you. Almost as soon as I sent the last response, I saw the server had propagated the change, so you should now be able to see your wordpress site without having to wait.

Best Regards,

Hello seoatoz,

I checked your account and the server had pointed the addon domain to one of the other IP addresses on the server by mistake. I had the server point it to the correct IP address and checked it in the server configuration file. Please allow up to 4 hours (though it usually happens much faster) for the server to propagate the information and your wordpress should display normally.

Best Regards,
