    Hi,

    I try follow the step in http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Step_3:_Set_up_wp-config.php to install my wordpress but failed.

    Step 1: Download and Extract ( I did below 2 steps)
    If you will be uploading WordPress to a remote web server, download the WordPress package to your computer with a web browser and unzip the package.
    If you will be using FTP, skip to the next step - uploading files is covered later.

    Step 2: Create the Database and a User ( I did using cPanel and used below step)
    Using cPanel

    Log in to your cPanel.
    Click MySQL Database Wizard icon under the Databases section.
    In Step 1. Create a Database enter the database name and click Next Step. In Step 2. Create Database Users enter the database user name and the password. Make sure to use a strong password. Click Create User.
    In Step 3. Add User to Database click the All Privileges checkbox and click Next Step.In Step 4. Complete the task note the database name and user. Write down the values of hostname, username, databasename, and the password you chose. (Note that hostname will usually be localhost.)

    Step 3: Set up wp-config.php ( My hostname remain local host, i had input correct DB_NAME & DB_USER, btw i had remain DB_CHARSET & DB_COLLATE as original )
    DB_NAME
    The name of the database you created for WordPress in Step 2 .
    DB_USER
    The username you created for WordPress in Step 2.
    DB_PASSWORD
    The password you chose for the WordPress username in Step 2.
    DB_HOST
    The hostname you determined in Step 2 (usually localhost, but not always; see some possible DB_HOST values). If a port, socket, or pipe is necessary, append a colon (:) and then the relevant information to the hostname.
    DB_CHARSET
    The database character set, normally should not be changed (see Editing wp-config.php).
    DB_COLLATE
    The database collation should normally be left blank (see Editing wp-config.php).

    Step 4: Upload the files ( I used FTP client filezilla to upload , i use root directory , before upload wordpress file to my domain, i can saw that my domain site has extra two folder, one is cgi-bin folder , and the other folder is a emplty self created folder . After upload completed, both side are sychronized, but i not sure this two extra folder in my domain will affect the installation or not )
    In the Root Directory
    If you need to upload your files to your web server, use an FTP client to upload all the contents of the wordpress directory (but not the directory itself) into the root directory of your web site.

    Step 5: Run the Install Script ( Lastly i try run the install script but it turn out page not found , i am suspect could be two issue, first issue is my installation steps above is wrong or maybe currently my name server is still point to wordpress.com , and still in the process to point back to my hosting company name server, so that even my installtion step is correct, the website admin panel wont just display successfully )
    I try run the script by visit this site:
    If you placed the WordPress files in the root directory, you should visit: http://mywebsitename.com/wp-admin/install.php

    Anyone know what could be the issue?

    Thanks.

    When did you point the domain name to your web server? If it was done recently, you might have to wait a while for the name changes to propagate through the Internet.

    I just did the changes point back to my webserver few hours ago, so i shall wait some times for it to propagate right?

    From above description, do you see my installation steps is correct?

    Thanks.

    Do you have the auto installer script such as Fantastico or Softaculous?
