I have had a wordpress.com blog for over a year now, and I have always had it mapped to blog.mydomain.com
I would now like to self-host the blog, and I have a couple of questions.
1: I already turned-off the domain mapping in my wordpress.com control panel and deleted it. However, when I go to blog.mydomain.com, it says: "Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please login and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain." I can't install wordpress on blog.mydomain.com because it keeps redirecting.
Do i have to do delete the custom CNAME in the DNS settings on in my host?
Lastly, when I was experimenting transfering to blog I was having lots of problems with the internal links not matching. Does anyone have a good way to upload the blog while preserving the internal links?
The blog I need help with is farawayflyfishing.wordpress.com.
