    Hi there,

    I have a basic blog on wordpress. However, now I want to set up an actual website for my business, using wp. I purchased my domain name on wp, and then chose a host server. Last night I installed wp onto my host server (hostgator). I then received an email that says this:

    Your new WordPress site has been successfully set up at:
    You can log in to the administrator account with the following information:
    Username: admin
    Password: —————

    But when I go to, and try to login with this info, I get the following error: You attempted to login with the username ‘admin’ on If you were trying to access your self hosted blog, try If you can’t remember your username, you can reset your password by providing your email address. If you have any questions please contact support.

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Is this happening because I originally purchased the url through wp and it’s pointing to the wrong place? I am a complete newbie at this, and any info or suggestions you can provide would be SO appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is
