How do I link a domain with an A record?

I'm having trouble pointing my domain to my linode wordpress server. I've put an A record in godaddy with my linode IP address but the domain just shows a default published page. Any help?

What do you mean by a 'default published page?" Do you mean the Apache default?

If so, that is a good sign in that the A record is working. You need to figure out what directory you built out your WordPress site?

What is the URL to the site's domain? Maybe we can help?
