    Hello people!

    I just purchased a domain for my wordpress blog at domainshop. I went trough all the steps of the installation process moving my wp files over to my ny web host via filezilla.

    I’m changing my blog from to

    The next step after that is to type my new domain name in my internet browser, and i should get directly in to a the guided final steps of the installation process. In stead i get this message:

    “Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please log in and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain. “

    I don’t understand what the problem is.. I’ve tried going through all the previous steps of moving my blog several times, and i still get this error…

    The blog I need help with is

    If you are moving to a host that is not WordPress.COM then the domain mapping that you might have bought is not required – but if you bought Domain Forwarding (Domain Helper does not know the difference and I can’t see your account settings) – is correct

    I don’t understand moving your blog using Filezilla – that only works when moving from one WordPress.ORG install to another WordPress.ORG installed blogs – when moving a WordPress.COM blog you can only export or import the contents, nothing can be moved with Filezilla

    Someone has flagged this for the staff to help
