Trouble with Dreamhost auto-install (2 posts)

    I just signed up with Dreamhost, primarily because they're supposed to have such great integration with WordPress, and I really wanted to try WP out. I ran their "one click" install of WP 2.0.2.

    The .php files are all in place at http://www.prom77.com/wp and a mySQL database (prom77wp) has been created at mysql.prom77.com, but running install.php gives me trouble.

    After I fill in a blog title and email address and press the "continue to second step" button, all I get is a "Not Found" screen... "The requested URL http:// was not found on this server."

    Can anyone give me a clue what's wrong?

    Me being the brilliant dude that I am, I decided to confirm the problem. First step looked ok, second step looked ok, assuming it wouldn't work I tried going on, and whaddaya know, it went and installed perfectly.

    Unfortunately, me being the idiot I am it installed with my email address as the admin's...

    The blog's set up now, so if you'll email me at jesse at resiny.org I can set it to your email addresss as the admin's and you can reset the password. once you do that you should be set...
