    I have installed wordpress in subdirectory blog of public_html of my website and I would like to use is for blogging. I am not sure whether this is workable. I can get to wp-login but it doesnt let me to login, I get oops cannot find file...
    I used fantasctico to do it as well as I tried a standard suggested installation through ftp both with the same result.
    This is my first encounter with wordpress and 5 minute installation turned into 2 days of nightmare.
    Please help

    is there any way you can post your url and if you can check pubic_html and see what folder has wordpress files and folders.

    Problem was with my hosting service. They have resolved the issue, which is good but bad news is that I don't know what they did but it works for now and I have learned a lot about wordpress after all the trouble. They told me that the issue was with some hidden file in public_html. Thank you very much.

    we can install wordpress in active site. just create a directory -> now copy wordpress files to the directory -> create database in mysql wizard -> now go to the url of the directory from browser -> now you will get the installation wizard.

    for example : active site : http://www.example.com/
    directory : about/
    install wordpress in http://www.example.com/about/

    It was likely your .htaccess file causing your issues. But the good news is you learned something through the process.
