I created the wp-config file and uploaded everything to the server. When I installed, I got the following:
"wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file."); require_once('../wp-config.php'); require_once('./upgrade-functions.php'); $guessurl = str_replace('/wp-admin/install.php?step=2', '', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) ); if (isset($_GET['step'])) $step = $_GET['step']; else $step = 0; ?>
hide_errors(); $installed = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->users"); if ($installed) die(__('
You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first."
Hmmm...does this mean that my config file is not correct?
Second, the 'already installed' has me for a loop since its the first install. Any ideas?
Finally, do all the wpordpress files need to uploaded in the root directory?
Thanks - I really do appreciate your patience with a struggling newb!
