Hi! I'm trying to create a new wordpress application.

when I create the app the process takes ages I doesn't even seems to work however is if change page and than go back I can see my new app with the generated password.

once I try to log in at wordpress.com/admin I inset "admin" and given password but the password seems to be incorrect.

I tried then to cancel and re-create a new app in order to get a different password but the outcome is exactly the same.

Hi,

You shouldn't be logging in at wordpress.com/admin. The WordPress app that you create through the control panel gets installed in your own user space under ~/webapps/<appname>. To see this app over the web, you need to create a website and mount the app to that website.

You can create a website under the "Websites" section in your control panel - select a domain name for the website, then add the app you just created to it. Then allow a few minutes, and visit http://example.org/admin in your browser (where example.org stands for the domain name you've assigned to the newly created website), and you should be able to log in there with user "admin" and the generated password.

More information on how apps and websites work in our system is available in our docs.

done that but when I try to visit: http://example.org/admin - - entering http://fabiovella.webfactional.com/admin instead (which is my test site)

I get a not found page.

Sorry, the correct URL is http://example.org/wp-admin (in your case http://fabiovella.webfactional.com/wp-admin )
