WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hello,

I have just registered a domain with Register.com of my new domain: palcellsinc.com and I've created a new website and new wp application in Webfaction. I am following Webfaction's wp documentation:

Log in to WordPress.

Open the WordPress Log In page at http://domain_path/wp-login.php where domain_path is the domain and URL path where the WordPress application is mounted. In the Username field, enter admin. In the Password field, enter the password from the control panel. Click the Log In button. The WordPress Dashboard appears.

My question is, What is my domain_path? when I go to the newly created domain http://palcellsinc.com/wp-login.php, it simply pointed to register.com's default page? how can I get it to display my own wp login?

In addition, I've already change Register.com's domain name server to ns1.webfaction.com I am not sure if they are right though. I understand it may take up to 48 hours for the propagation to work. In the meantime, please help me to confirm the DNS settings as shown in the https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2obo85cOW59LTh2Y0FyYU5DaWM/edit?usp=sharing

Also, is there anything I can do to start immediately log in to Wordpress at my Webfaction's Palcellsinc WP login without having to wait 48 hours?

Thank you!

Yes, you can set your local hosts file to the correct IP address. More information is available in our documentation here.
