    I forgot how I'm supposed to generate the Nonce Salts for the configuration.

    What do I do?

  2. You mean this?

    https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/

    It's also listed in your wp-config by the way ;)

    Mika,

    I downloaded wp-config.php. It shows this:
    define('AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('NONCE_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('AUTH_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('SECURE_AUTH_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('LOGGED_IN_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('NONCE_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');

    So it doesn't look like they have been generated. I'm assuming the ones in your link are general and not specific to my site.

    Isn't there a place in the installation to generate a set of them for installation into the wp-config.php file?

    Did you setup your wp-config.php file manually? If so, there's a link on the file that you should have visited: http://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/

    Just did it. Thanks.

    I forgot to look at the instructions in the wp-config.php file. It was right there. Going blind.
