WordPress How to Make a Website with WordPress Installing WordPress 1 Click WordPress Install

when I try to log in to wordpress (mysite.com/wp-admin/) a 404 page comes up?

I have a GoDaddy domain, I used to have it with a InstantPage setup. Then I bought the Hosting for students hosting and linked my domain to it. I canceled my InstantPage account and changed the nameservers to ns1.vm3783.sgvps.net and ns2.vm3783.sgvps.net and I also changed my A(host) IP in Zone File to the one hosting for students sent me. I already installed wordpress in the cpanel, but still when i try to login with mysite.con/wp-admin/ a 404 page not found appears

Is that error linked to the changing IP on the A (host)? how can I fix that?

Propogation can take up to 24 hours. So if you just switched everything, wait a little bit. Clear your cookies/cache/dns cache etc. Also make sure you installed wordpress in the right place.

Hey thanks a lot, you were right! I tried again right now and everything was just fine... Thanks for the answer!

Hi Jose,

Ghost Code is right. I recently did the same thing as you (with GoDaddy as well) and it was sorted within the day.


Yes he was right, everything is working just fine now... thanks for the reply! ;)
