WordPress

Chrome says that my wordpress.com/wp-admin/ website cannot be found.. What's wrong?

I used the 1 click method for downloading wordpress through cPanel (just as they do in the tutorial videos). I assume this downloads the wordpress documents in the correct location. It has been over 1.5 hours and chrome continues to tell me "sorry, the website cannot be found." Is this a propagation issue?

You'll need to look got your website via your domain where you ran your 1 click installaton. If you're looking for your wp-admin dashboard than this is a Wordpress.org website, not .com. Good luck :)

Yea, I am trying to get to the website via the domain link that cPanel (which is where I did my 1 click installation) sent to me but it is still not working.. Anyone know what other issues I might be running into and how to possibly fix them?

have you tried: www.yourDomainName.com/wp-admin

this is generally how you log into a wordpress site, I'm not sure what is going on in your case, if there is still a problem, can you let us know some more info so we can help you better.
