I can not get the install to run to completion (7 posts)

    I have expanded all files and uploaded the files to my site, then added the information needed into the wp-config.php file. When I try to run the wp-admin\install.php I receive this message.

    There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. and the program wants to create the config file that is already in place and is correctly made as far as I can tell. Is this a problem on my end or the host site end?

    Double check again to see if the wp-config.php file is there, should be in the WordPress root folder.

    question for verification I installed into the root directory do I need to place it as the WordPress folder is in the root then all the files inside of the that folder?

    small up date for the above question I have checked file name it is correct I have checked the numeric value of the file it is 644.
    and if I try to create the file through the wizard offered by the install.php it reports that it can not create the file

    If you want to install wordpress in root then you need to have content of wordpress folder in root.

    If you are installing WordPress in the root directory, the contents of the Worpdress folder needs to be in the root directory too.

    I missed this. At any rate, I have several WordPress installs where all (or almost all) of the WP files are in a subfolder, and the index.php is in root. It's just a matter of editing a few files.
