I'm transferring a website from another host, and I wanted to get WordPress installed here on my account in 34sp.com first, so when I change nameservers it'll be ready to go.

I've created the domain via Plesk control panel, uploaded the Wordpress files, created the MySQL database and user but I can't find a way to load the PHP install file for Wordpress.

Is this because I haven't pointed the nameservers to 34sp yet?

I had hoped to use http://[IP ADDRESS OF DOMAIN ON 34sp]/wp-admin/install.php but that won't work (I've checked, the file is there, just won't load via http).

Am I stumped until the nameserver change??
