    All right sparky! You've made it through this part of the installation. WordPress can now communicate with your database. If you are ready, time now to run the install!

    I run the install nevertheless :
    “There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. You must create one before moving on.”
    And the db is still empty.
    My mistake, or a small bug ?

  • Sorry, forgot to fill my name in =)

    …in this forum, I mean. The install problem is still there.
    Can you tell these are my first posts here ? 😉

    Your wordpress directory does not have write permissions. You need to chmod 766 to your wordpress directory and then chmod 755 after you finish your install. If it does not make sense, try editing the wp-config-sample.php by hand (as per instructions) and saving it in the root of your blog as wp-config.php

    Chmod’ding the directories, and even their files, didn’t change anything.
    I therefore created the wp-config.php by hand like you advised me. It said I probably didn’t have WP installed, and therefore walked me through the whole process : it worked beautifully (apart from the SQL errors already dismissed by Matt).
    Thanks for the help. Great installer! 😉

    I upgraded too 1.0.1 miles and i chmod everything and changed the wp-config file and now it all works but i had the buttons for quicklinks before the upgrade and now i just have a link for the quicklinks. Any ideas ??

    I got it… I turned them off and back on and there are the buttons

    I got the same error, but I took another route to fix this – create the config file manually and upload. But there are more to come regarding my sql errors.
    meanwhile, when I loged in to configure through admin console, lots of the text boxes are having troubles – when I tried to key in some texts, I got the error like ” a run time error has occurred. Do you wish to debug? line: 50, Error: ‘null’ is null or not an object.”
    pls let me know if there is fix to this. thankx alot.

    The top-level wordpress directory in the 1.01 install package is mode 744. If people use that top-level directory, they will get errors, I’d think. It should be mode 755, typically.


    Hi, I am an Italian boy, I don’t understand very well the English, however, seems me that the installation of wordpress is like a puzzle!
    After the first footstep, here is this notice: There doesn’t seem to be to wp-config.php file. You created must one before moving on. Ok, I open the file wp-config-smaple.php, I correctly insert my data, I rename in wp-config.php and I make upload. New test: tell me that the file already exists and that needs to remove it! I remove it, and then… sorry, I need the file wp-config-smaple.php… I again insert it… I have to create the file wp-config.php… in short, a puzzle. Does someone know how to tell me as to go out of this trouble? Thanks.

    There are actually 2 different “install” steps to run, which will help you get out of the loop you’re in.
    1. When you run wp-admin/install-config.php it is creating (or re-creating) the wp-config.php file. Running it multiple times (it sounds like that is what you’re doing) will just keep re-creating that file, but won’t get you any further. Only run install-config.php once…. OR, if you have created wp-config.php by hand, you don’t even need to run install-config at all.
    2. After the wp-config.php file exists and you’ve entered the correct info into it, you run wp-admin/install.php, which will do the rest of the setup of WP.
    Good luck!
