Delay in getting an active Joomla admin panel

  • Answered
Why so long to get an active Joomla admin panel? After installing, I was told by InMotion it would take "4 to 24 hours" to have an active admin panel. That's a pretty substantial window. I'm in hour 5 now and wondering why it's taking so long.
Your admin panel is active on the server immediately after installing, however, it can take 4-24 hours for your domain to propagate depending on how often your ISP updates their records. You may, however, perform a host file mod which will let you alone access your domain while waiting for it to propagate for the rest of the world.
