Ok -- Trying to install wp 1.0.1 (from sourceforge). No go.
I've now read enough threads to realize that the install issues are not simply related to my setup, which happens to be: Windows XP Pro / IIS5.1 / PHP 18.104.22.168 / MySql 4.?
The current build is simply gimpy.
The low-down? (following instructions to a tee)
A couple of UNDEFINED errors? (ok, reporting may be a bit high)
Warnings and notices (below), then the install doesn't find this magical config file...
ok, so I've checked, and rechecked my rights. Full Rights to both IUSR_ & IWAM_
even created the config file from scratch...
re-run the install.php --> finally -->
"It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running
This message comes from the file called "install.php" -- (which also has a link that should point to current directoy, but instead points to wp-admin/install.php, so I get "wp-admin/wp-admin/install.php" -- obviously a naughty include -- but obviously not ready for prime-time).
I'm done. I'll try again when wp is stable.
BTW- promised error messages:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 121
Notice: Undefined variable: handle in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 142
Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 142
Warning: chmod(): No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 143
All right sparky! You've made it through this part of the installation. WordPress can now communicate with your database. If you are ready, time now to run the install!
