    install the WP under the root folder of your add-on domain or if you have single domain name then install it under root.

    Looks like it's installing it to a subfolder called WP, need to move the files to the root directory

    Check this out: http://bestmovietrackers.com/wp/

    You installed wordpress in the wrong directory.
    Make sure to just enter / when the directory is asked while installing wordpress.

    Yes.

    The above two responses are correct.
    You unzipped the wordpress files and ended up installing
    in the unzip directory instead of the root directory.

    MOVE the file to the root directory.


    Good Luck

    ^^ OP said he installed via softaculous so there is no concern of unzipping files.. softaculous is an advance version of Fantastico and we don't need to upload/unzip files on our own it does it on fly. also he did not installed it on unzip folder he did on wp/. guess you did not even read the op's post.
