    Sorry, wasn't sure where to put this.

    I've just created my first WordPress site.

    Whenever I try and go to my site it looks like this:

    7ec9f97fd1aabdbe6ecd1bece7c9dfa2.jpg

    However, when I got to mydomainname.com/wp then it takes me to my site.

    Can somebody please let me know what i have done wrong. Thanks :)

    You installed the wordpress in subfolder instead of root.

    Un-install it, then install it again but do not put it into the subfolder. Just leave it install on the domain itself (i.e: domain.com).

    If you still have no idea what you're doing from taking everyone's advice from the posts above. Just contact your hosting and they'll fix it for you

    Yeah, so i set up a subdomain and installed WordPress into that. I'm following the auto-blogger guide from this site.


    That's what it tells you to do. Should I have installed WordPress onto my main domain to begin with?

    Yes. As stated above, if you have a good host, they will fix it for you.

    Try this with your auto installer.
    Code:
    To install wordpress in a subdomain just follow the following steps.1. Create a subdomain in the cPanel, lets suppose it to be "blog.mysite . com"2. Goto Fantastico and select WordPress from the available list of Packages available under "Blogs section".3. Click on "New Installation"4. In the "Install on domain" option you'll find a list of available domains and subdomains, select the one where you want to install the WordPress. Here in our case, "blog.mysite . com"5. Next Complete the required information and your Worpress will be installed in the subdomain automatically by Fantastico.6. Pre-check all the info before hitting the submit button.7. after completion you can view the WordPress blog at "blog.mysite . com"

    For some strange reason with the host I use, whenever I use the auto installer it installs wordpress into a wp folder by default.

    [​IMG]

    Delete the wp in the box indicated to install in the root directory (You should find similar or the same when you try to auto install wordpress with your host)
