    So I talked to the "Wordpress support gurus" and they can't seem to help, so I decided to take the problem to the real geniuses, the guys on BHW:)

    Anyway, bought a domain on Namecheap, bought the baby plan on hostgator, and then I used Fantastico deluxe to install wordpress 3.1 on my site.

    It said it installed correctly, and the next step was to go to mydomain(dot)com/wp-admin

    I did that and the following error showed up:


    Written form (if you can't see the picture):
    Server Error in Application "PARK YOUR DOMAIN CMS"
    Internet Information Services 7.5
    Error Summary
    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
    Detailed Error Information
    Module IIS Web Core
    Notification MapRequestHandler
    Handler StaticFile
    Error Code 0x80070002
    Requested URL http://localhost:50080/wp-admin
    Physical Path C:\Websites\Park Your Domain\CmsWeb\wp-admin
    Logon Method Anonymous
    Logon User Anonymous
    Most likely causes:
    The directory or file specified does not exist on the Web server.
    The URL contains a typographical error.
    A custom filter or module, such as URLScan, restricts access to the file.

    I installed in the root directory, and I know that I am trying to access the right file. Whats going on?

    Internet Information Services is a webserver that is used with Windows.
    Considering you´re installing WP on a Hostgator baby plan from within Fantastico this is strange.

    If I were you I would remove the install from within Fantastico and start again.

    I have exactly the same problem (same error, but not hostgator).....

    I bought last night my domain......and after a few hours it seemed changed NameServers, and I installed Wordpress ....and in morning everything seemed ok, but in evening I came back and got the same error as above...

    I hope, may be the Nameservers are not completely propagated......if so, it should resolve during the next 24 hrs, but if not......
    I first see this error...
