When I uploaded wordpress, there were no file divisions (no subfolders), so, when I tried to run the install.php, I got lots of errors. As they came, up, I have been creating the missing folders and moving the file that is pointed to in the error into that new location. Everything is set for CHMOD 755 right now.
I had to create all the folders: wp-admin, wp-includes, wp-content/themes/default.
We have a dedicated server, with MySQL capability. I created the database and username and password as per the instructions, and then it said that the table did not exist, so I had to create a table myself.
I am now past that, after handling each of these errors as they came up. NOw I have hit an error screen that does not make sense enough to me to resolve it myself:
Warning: extract(): First argument should be an array in /home/jmblogc/public_html/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1813
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_links_list() in /home/jmblogc/public_html/blog/wp-includes/links.php on line 13
