    Hey all,
    I guess I'm also having troubles with the installation of wordpress.
    I've done this many times and it's working fine,
    I don't know what happend:

    1 I've download the 3.1 version
    2.upload it to my website
    3.created a database

    when I'm typing my website URL in the browser I'm getting the page
    that i need to input all the database information.
    I'm writing all that also in those files:
    wp-config.php
    wp-config-sample.php

    then I'm getting the page:

    "Sorry, but I can't write the wp-config.php file."

    Ok, so I'm uploading this file with the DB information
    and then it says:

    "The file 'wp-config.php' already exists. If you need to reset any of
    the configuration items in this file, please delete it first. You may try installing now."

    and finally I'm getting a blank page which i don't know why

    oritzio,

    Try to delete wp-config.php, and wp-config-sample.php from the server. Then upload wp-config-sample.php (without any modifications). Then rename wp-config-sample.php on your local computer to wp-config.php and upload to server. Make sure wp-config.php has write (777) permissions. Then access your website like: http://your-domain.com/wordpress/ or if you have it in the root folder, then http://your-domain.com/

    Follow the steps on the screen then.

    Once installed, set 644 (or 444) permissions for your wp-config.php file.

    So that important not to change the sample file.
    I'll keep it in mind, thank you.
