Install not Going well (5 posts)

    I’m trying to install WordPress on onto Windows 2003 Server. I have succesfully installed IIS 6.0, MySQL , and PHP. http://www.host.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php, enter all the variables, and click Next. Then it goes to the next page (Step 2) …and that’s it, completely blank except for the WordPress Banner. No confirmation, no error message, nothing. The page just sits there and right now, I’m not sure how to proceed. Any suggestions on how to get that moving?

    I have already created a database called wordpress and a user who has full rights that database. I ‘m doing my own hosting. I’ve even opened up port 3306 on my router just to be safe. I’ve tried using textpattern and experienced the same issues, I’ve also ran a php script to verify that is working. The version of PHP I’m using is 5.0.4 and MySQL is 4.1.11, I checked my error logs and can’t find anything there, either on the server or the router. I even downgraded PHP to 4.03 with the same results

    Oh yea, I also tried it on a server running linux and apache with the same versions of MySQL and PHP and had the same results. If anyone has any ideas, I could sure use them, I’ve been on this problem for two days now. Thanks in advance.

    well i finally got it working, i had to downgrade both mysql and php. in the php.ini file, i had to set the the doc_root = "leave blank" and place c:\php in the path under enviroment varibles for those of you wanting to run wordpress on IIS 6.0, I will be putting up some documetation on how I got it to work, once I get it all written down. or you can e-mail me @ keystroker@gmail.com
