Already have wordpress blog up and running, How do I connect it with my domain?

I have a wordpress already, and when I went through the steps to try and have it installed with my current information, it just went ahead and created a new wordpress with the same login information that I've already had. I'm worried that this will ruin my blog, and current domain website.

Now that I've uninstalled wordpress from my domain, kaleilibby.com still has the wordpress theme to it. I don't know if this is reversible.

The way you worded your question was kind of hard to follow. Are you trying to migrate a WordPress site from one hosting account to another?

I think I figured out how to reverse what I messed up. But now I just want to connect my wordpress and my domain. Any suggestions for how to do that?

Where is your WordPress now? On another domain or on your localhost?

My Wordpress is hosted on Wordpress, but I have a domain site that I wanted to integrate my WP onto. Any tips?

You have to separately install wordpress on your domain directly through either the hosting account admin area or manually(which is more complex).
