    Hi ... a directory is like a folder in your file manager which contains the files for individual domains ..

    public_html is the directory/folder for your main domain

    Any other domain that you have added on to your voda hosting account is a folder inside of public_html titled by it's domain name ...

    So it all depends where it is you would like to have wordpress ...

    If you are still unclear, please let us know

    If you installed wordpress into the public_html you overwrote whatever site was there with the blog.

    Did you read any of the information pertaining to word press? Most people choose /word or /blog as the directory. You also have to choose a theme etc.

    www.yousite.com/word/wp-admin

    or wp-login

    Good deal.. figured that following or retracing the steps would rectify it.
