    Someone please help me. I think i may have misinterpreted the instructions incorrectly. When I copied all the files to my server I change the folder that said, WORDPRESS to BLOG so that my files are in http://www.lukasluvin.com/blog.

    This is the way the URL looks when i got the first screen requesting blog name and E-mail:
    http://www.lukasluvin.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

    Chen I click the install button it goes to this at the URL
    http://www.lukasluvin.com/blog/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php?step=2

    bu the screen says 404 File Not Found.

    I know the wordpress file is not there. Should I change teh BLOG file back to WORDPRESS and reload it onto my server? Please someone help me here. I have been sitting on this for 24 hours now.

    That's strange. Did you set the WP_SITEURL or WP_HOME constants in your wp-config.php file? (that would be unusual).

    I set up the wp-config.php file exactly as told and the rah th install and it work and brought up step one. I entered in the Blog Name and my e-mail address and I get the 404 File not found screen and the URL that I KNOW is wrong.

    it seems you have some files in /blog
    and some files in /blog/wordpress
    be sure they are all where you want them

    I don't see a WORDPRESS file anywhere on the server. What am I missing?

    I went ahead and set it up so that the password was emailed to your email address as listed on your home page.

    Actually, it's still acting strange. Either the admin files have been modified or you have some sort of output buffer replacement going on.

    I would try downloading the files again from here and uploading them over the current files.

    it seems to be working at the moment... Thanks. What was the strange thing that it was doing?

    The links in wp-admin still point to ../wordpress/wp-admin/, which is odd since they're hard-coded into the admin files.

    OK so i see why this is a problem now. Everything I want to do as far as set up tried to go to the blog/wordpress. I guess I will just ahve to try to start over.

    Try re-uploading the files, but make sure that you get them from the official download link, which I linked to above. It really looks like your files were altered. Can you think of any reason that might have happened?
