I am having a conflict between a wp.com site moving to wp.org - my attempts to set up the new admin keep defaulting to the wp.com dashboard - below is the message I posted at wp.org but no one is answering - maybe someone here knows how to override this admin problem. Thank you
I have previously set up a blog [using wp.org] and went through the same steps [but installing it in the root folder] as the first time but am having a problem with a new blog on a different site.
The new site has a blog at wordpress.com. [entertainmenttodayandbeyond.com / aka chuckcurry.wordpress.com] They also have their own url/server with two subdomains - one named blog and a new one I named wp
At wordpress.com they paid to have the blog redirect to the blog sub-domain [which does not appear to have any cancellation option]. At the server both the root domain and the blog sub-domain forward to the wp.com blog.
I named the wordpress folder "wp" and uploaded to the wp sub-domain.
When I try to set-up admin it takes me to the wordpress.com dashboard. Is the problem with the forwarding? They don't want to have any of their current link backs affected so I don't want to release the domain forward unless it's the only way to fix the problem. I'm sure this must be something simple but??? Any ideas are appreciated
The blog I need help with is chuckcurry.wordpress.com.
