Thank you very much, It's finally sorted, am very happy.
WP admin -> Settings - > General allows domain modification (this is not the same as permalinks settings)
Cheers

HI

The method which I have shown isn't an redirection. The issue is with wordpress, please login to the wordpress control panel and change the URL settings, this will ensure the links always show your domain name.

I am sorry but not. This looks like a redirect, domain points to index.php page. Site links (internal pages) are showing up in address bar as vpsnumber.ovh.net.. Is there a way to make it nicer?

Hi

The website now works with your VPS.

Thank you. I swear, I did not delete anything. There are plenty of records showing up in my domain control panel (not OVH), they look different, even IP differs. I tried to modify it from there, but it did not change. I can contact their support team, just in case. However, I changed IP for A record in my OVH panel. That's it, I did nothing else.

Hi

It appears you have set the records but you have also deleted all other records in the DNS zone. You would need some of these other records as well.

I will email you directly regarding this issue.

Thank you. This is what I was saying. In several topics on this forum it was said I need to set DNS like nsmyservernumber.etc... I will change it in a while, moment. As for the A record, shall I change it from domain registrar control panel or in my ovh control panel. Id we are talking about ovh panel, it's already set as you advised. Will it work like this? I changed everything.

Hi

I have checked through your domain and there is 2 steps required to make your website working with the VPS.

1) DNS

Your current name servers doesn't work, you need new name servers which work. If you like, can use the name servers which OVH has for your domain name. In your case they are:

dns111.ovh.net,
ns111.ovh.net

2) A record

Your VPS has an IP address, you need to add this IP address to your DNS zone, within your manager you need to either create/modify the A record and supply the new A record as your VPS IP.

Afterwards your website will work against the VPS.

Thanks

Hi

Can you provide me with your domain name? I can check this for you.

Alternatively you can contact support directly where by we can email you instead if you wish to keep your domain private.

Thanks

I cannot add domain to my WP server package, that's it. Your guides are not up to date. I asked for assistance on this forum, but the response (see above) was irrelevant. I need either a proper guide (link) or advice how to use externally registered domain name with WP server.

Hi

WordPress is already installed so just follow the admin link and you can set it up to the way you want.

Hi everyone (and thanks for reading this). I am a complete newbie. Bought VPS Classic subscription, just installed WordPress option on it, and have no idea what to do next. In Wordpress version it (the server, I mean) comes pre-configured. Do I need to install anything on my side in addition to what I already have? I mean, shall I bother with setting up anything else on the server or not? Also - important practical question -. how to link (an externally registered) domain name to the web space? Please help.

P.S. I found this guide on the Internet, shall I follow all this steps on WP server or not? Please advise.
