There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file (5 posts)

    http://cgi.photobscura.net/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php. That's where I installed wordpress. For some reason it keeps saying that I didn' tput the wp-config.php file but I did, I did it twice just to make sure, and I made sure all of the stuff was edited but it's not working. Does anyone know why?

  2. No you didn't:


    You probably forgot to rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php.

    And WordPress isn't written in Perl or whatever, so it doesn't need to be in your CGI folder, assuming that's what that subdomain is for.

    But if php is run as cgi on his host that might explain it....

    Nope. I installed WP on Dreamhost for a friend, and DH is also running PHP as cgi, but there is nothing like that in the URI...

  5. Well, even Perl or whatever it is files don't need to be run in the cgi-bin or whatnot folder to the best of my knowledge.

    And man, every time I hear something else about DreamHost, I realize how crappy they really are.
