I'm relatively new at WordPress. I downloaded and installed last summer on a plesk server and everything went fine. At least I don't recall having a problem.
Yesterday I tried downloading and installation on the SAME PLESK server, but for a different domain. I followed all the directions in the "famous 5 minute install" and I have a Visual Quickstart Guide as well. However, every time I try to run the .../wp-admin/install.php step, I get a page of code with the message toward the top "wp-config.php seems to be missing". I tried it several times, even uninstalling and reinstalling the database and user on the server.
This morning, I uninstalled the database and user once again, deleted all wordpress files from my computer and started fresh with a new database name, new user and a new password. Fresh new wp-config.php file. I even uploaded from a different computer and still I get this page of code with the "missing wp-config.php" message.
I haven't really seen anything that sounds like the same problem here on these boards, so now I'm officially asking for some insight. It must be something I'm doing wrong, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out what!
Thanks in advance!
