Can't install (6 posts)

    I have followed the steps very closely, but when I point my browser to "http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php", (replacing example.com of course) I get a page with a bunch of random junk on it (using Safari 3.1.1 on Mac OS X Leopard).

    Here is a screen shot of what I get:

    Guessing from the errors - have you provided a valid email address in the configuration details? Been a while since I did an install from scratch and I'm trying to recall when it asks for one...

    Alternatively, it looks as if your server might not be serving the PHP properly as that code shouldn't be "visible".

    Or (*phew*) one of the install files could be corrupt (likely install.php itself) and missing a chevron somewhere so it's not enclosing the code properly...

    Hmmm...where exactly would I put the email address?

    That's what I'm thinking... the Install program asks you for it so you shouldn't be seeing that code. What you've got on the screen is the actual PHP code, not the result of it running.

    Sorry, I was kind of "thinking out loud" on the previous post. I'm much more inclined to go with the damaged file or PHP not running theories. Are you sure that your server/provider/host has PHP running properly?

    I just got some new hosting which now DOES support PHP, MYSQL ect. I had to change the name servers, so I'll try again in a couple of days.

    Good luck! :) Let us know if this sorts the problem.
