Can't install (5 posts)

    I'm running on Windows 2000 Server with IIS. Setup a virtual dir and ran the install-config.php succesfully after adding two lines just above line 121 as suggested else where on the forum. Now I run install.php and I get this:
    It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php.
    What's wrong?

    Are you sure you ran install.php and not index.php? That seems like an odd message to get.
    My next question would be: What version is this? Latest release? Latest nightly? or the latest out of CVS?

    Yes, I'm sure. As far as I can tell, wp-config.php includes wp-settings.php which has the error message in question. The install script references wp-config.php so the message is real and I can see a path to how this could happen.

    This is the latest release (not a nightly build). Any thoughts. I tried commenting out the offending lines but then I got a bunch of errors about not being able to create tables and such. Is there a way to by-pass the install? Maybe a sql script?
    For what it is worth, I can run phpMyAdmin on this system so I know the basic sql/php setup is good.

    Ok, I commented lines out in the wp-settings.php file and ignored the SQL errors. Apparently, the hide_errors() method is not doing its intended job. Answered all the questions and completed the install. Then I uncommented the lines I commented out earlier and it appears to be running.
    Here's what I commented out in wp-settings.php to complete the install (lines 27-29):
    if (!$wpdb->get_row("SELECT * FROM $tableusers LIMIT 1") && !strstr($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['REQUEST_URI'], 'install.php')) {
    die("It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php.");
    }
