Question

Remove symbolic links (or whatever) created by wordpress install?

Posted August 2, 2013 3.1k views
I tried installing wordpress on my Ubuntu/Apache droplet, but something went wrong. I removed wordpress, but now when I following this url in my browser: http://wordpress.myreallynicesite.com/ I get the following: [DIR] myfancydomainone.com/ 11-Jul-2013 05:30 - [DIR] myreallynicesite.com/ 02-Aug-2013 04:56 - I don't know if this is due to a symbolic link or something, but how can I wipeout this wordpress.myreallynicesite.com active url? Also, what is it? I looked at the sites-available file for the domain and could not find anything, could not find any evident symbolic links, etc.

Are there any symbolic links in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/? If so, you can deactivate them with
sudo a2dissite [symbolic link]
No, so symbolic links there.
@greglafrance007: What's the output of this command?

ls /etc/apache2/sites-enabled
"I tried installing wordpress..."

How did you try installing it? Did you follow a guide? If so, which one?
