Not able to access Backend even after installing wordpress on cpanel. How do we setup the domain on VPS?

Using Go Daddy Virtual Private Server. After Installing the wordpress as seen in the video, I am not able to open the admin or the website. Seems some setting is still pending. !

Can you hit the website normally, like going to www.mydomain.com? Is this a very new VPS? If your DNS hasn't propagated yet, you wouldn't be able to hit the admin login, or the front of the site either. DNS propogation can take 24 hours or more, but in my experience it usually happens in a couple of hours, sometimes just minutes.
