    I get the following error when trying to install wp 2.2 on http://www.klastrup.dk - i have double and triple check the config file, and everything is the way it should be... Anyone have an idea what may be wrong?:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/install.php was not found on this server.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    That means the file is NOT on the server.
    I'd try to upload a fresh copy of the WP files. Make sure you have the proper folder structure when uploading the files.

    Files are there - that's the weird thing... I've done several 'fresh' uploads, and checked that the files are there from different locations - totally at a loss...

    Files are where?
    And when looking at them via ftp - do you see the 3 wp-folders:
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes
    + a lot of files?

    yup - exactly as it should be... I've done this heaps of times and can't for the life of me find the difference between now and the other times.

    I assume you try to install it in a subfolder - since there is something else in the root.
    Are you typing the correct URL in the browser?
    example.com/subfolder/wp-admin/install.php

    Had to put the old content back for a while - couldn't keep the site down, but i was installing in the root and used the URL: http://klastrup.dk/wp-admin/install.php... i'll give it another go now, though.

    yeah, still no luck... perhaps i'll contact the host.

    I'd try to install it in its own folder not to interfere with whatever is in the root, and when it's done you can display it in the root with a very simple adjustment
    (see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory)

    Just to leave WordPress out of the equation, and insure that you are putting files in the correct folder, put a file like that suggested in Finding_server_info and try to browse to that. Kills two birds with one stone also--you know you are placing files in the correct place and you confirm that PHP is working ;)

    no luck with that either (http://klastrup.dk/blog/wp-admin/install.php) ... guess i'll have to wait for my provider's support dep. to open for business tomorrow morning.

    Well you are either putting the files in the wrong place, or the domain is hosted somewhere else (meaning your name servers aren't pointing to where you are trying to put your files), or there's some kind of redirect or .htaccess issue.
