[resolved] Installing a Danish Version 2.5 over a UK Version 2.3 (6 posts)

    hi!

    OK, I have had WP 2.3 UK version installed and I wanted to go to Danish Version 2.5. So I did this:

    * backed up the database using a plugin
    * deleted the SQL database
    * removed all files via FTP

    * uploaded all the Danish WP 2.5 files
    * recreated the database and user etc.
    * ran the /wp-admin/install.php
    * logged on correctly

    BUT THE WP IS STILL IN ENGLISH!

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks
    Mark

    * ran the /wp-admin/install.php
    Big mistake!
    You never run the install.php on an existing database! It will erase every post, Page, comments... all the content.
    Or, that's what you wanted?

    yes I dont mind

    but I ended up with a clean install in English although I used the Danish version WordPress

    Any ideas?

    in config file you need to specify, if not already, what localisation it needs to use...

    wp-config.php

    // Change this to localize WordPress.  A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

    In that case it is NOT installing something over something. It is a clean new install. Why are you overcomplicating it?

    Just follow the instructions: Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language
