I apologise if this has been covered in previous threads, I have looked, albeit unsuccessfully.
I am a web novice first off, so please if you are able to help me use layman's terms if possible.
I am at step 5, in the Famous 5-minute install, (3 hours for me).
The part where it asks you to open the install.php file in my browser, is not working.
The instruction is very broad and I have tried many different methods, ie;
1: Opening the install.php file from my FTP program (Fetch)
3: Opening it from my Hosts server (Webcity)
2: Trying to edit the file again in Fetch, which edits the file in Dreamweaver
Seeing as though it is, according to step 6, supposed to give me a password, and I should be able to edit 'tables', I assume I'm doing it wrong as none of these features have shown themselves to me.
When I drag the file (from Fetch) into my open browser, it says, "You do not have permission to access this file".
I tried to alter the files permissions via 'control+click' (Mac computer), but that didn't work either.
I turn to you all, as I'm at my wits end trying to get past step 5, and if I'm stumped here then god help me.
Thankyou in advance,
