WordPress Theme Update and Installation

I have installed wordpress application into my sub domain and then installed the necessary plugins and themes. I have installed Open Shop theme and now I want to use it as my new theme. I have customized my theme and also have and saved and published it via Word Press Manager dashboard. But every time I run my website, I receive the coming soon web page and not the theme that I just installed, customized, and published. What should I do?

Thank you.

You may need to delete the coming soon for the root of your site (assuming that the wordpress site is configured at the root and not in a subfolder)

 

If the WordPress install is in a subfolder you may have to adjust the domain settings to point to the correct folder.

I would delete the Default.aspx - also as an FYI - while WordPress does / will run on a Windows server, I do not recommend it as people often report other issues with configuration and having it run correctly - so just be aware.
