    When I try to run the install.php file all I get is a blank browser window...

    I believe I did everything I was supposed to do...

    Any ideas?

    I'm stuck.

    I'm also getting the same thing on a new blog I'm trying to set up!

    I have the MySQL database set up (atleast I think I do), and edited my wp-config file accordingly. Everything uploaded successfully but when I go to run install.php, it's just a blank page and it says "done"

    Is there a log that I can refer to to see what is going on?

    the link is here: http://www.indiarainbow.org/blog/wp-admin/install.php

    All the files are in the blog folder on the ftp server

    Same here - blank white page when I call the install script. I tried deleting everything and reuploading the entire package; didn't help.

    Okay, well my problem was once again my own - I forgot to put in my database password in wp-config.php

    well I seem to have the same problem, but my wp-config.php file is correctly changed, I've double checked it now for about 8 times.

    I get a blank screen on my ~/wp-admin/install.php

    What else can i do wrong?

    This is a first install on the server after using it on MAMP. I've downloaden a completely new version so it's not affected.

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'MYDBNAME');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'MYDBUSERNAME');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'MYCHOSENPASSWORD');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    Please help!

    @Koekebakker are tying to move wordpress to host from Mamp if so check with your host if they localhost or some other setting.

    No no. I tried it on MAMP so I would get familiar with it. This is now a completely new download and install.

    @govpatel

    Thanks... yes I was just going to come and post on here again...

    What I ended up having to do was download WP 3.0.5 and use that. It seemed to get past the blank screen... maybe someone can try that and see if it helps!

    I also had to bother my hosting company to get the real hosting address and changed that from localhost to whatever it was. That also helped get it installed :)

    Thanks once again!
