[resolved] Uploaded everything, but error message on install... (4 posts)

    I've configured my wp-config.php file and uploaded my entire directory to my website, but when I run the install.php, here's the message I get:

    Warning: require_once(../wp-load.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/j/c/h/jchancey/html/pattern/main/wp-admin/install.php on line 4

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../wp-load.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/j/c/h/jchancey/html/pattern/main/wp-admin/install.php on line 4

    I looked through all the folders in the unzipped file, and I don't see a single file named "wp-load.php."

    Help?

    Thanks!

    Hold the presses. I double-checked my FTP program and found that the upload did not complete (duh). So I redid the upload from scratch, then ran the install. Now I get this error message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/content/j/c/h/jchancey/html/pattern/main/wp-config.php on line 6

    ???

    Thanks!

    wp-load.php is in the main WordPress folder (same folder as wp-config.php)

    I'd reupload your WordPress folders. Make sure your FTP client is using ASCII mode (or auto mode if using FileZilla).

    Nevermind. I figured it out. There was an extra apostrophe in my DB HOST name in the wp-config.php.

    Feeling sheepish....
