I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.
The first time I installed WordPress on one of my websites was on my personal blog site, which was brand new and had no content on it yet. I had absolutely no problems at all installing WP 1.5.2 there.
Now I've been trying to install WP on a different site that I have that has content there already. What I've been hoping to do is get WP installed, get the layout done, put the content into WP pages, etc, and then switch over in a matter of minutes, as opposed to having to shut the site down and so forth, but I've been having problems trying to get WP installed to that site. I first installed WP 1.5.2, and the first problem I noticed was that I couldn't get my plugin page to work properly, the plugins wouldn't activate. I never did get that figured out, but then WP 2.0 came out, so I deleted 1.5.2 and put up a new database and uploaded and installed 2.0, and I'm having problems with that as well.
Both sites are hosted by the same company....the only difference I noted between the installations on the two different sites was that one site was new and empty, the other site had some content there.
Has anyone else noticed this? Is it best to install WP on a site when there is no content? Just wondering.
