Support » Installing WordPress » 3.1 install.php gives blank page

  • Resolved jhp1


    This is a fresh install of 3.1 (downloaded and setup 2x just to be sure). The underlying software is WAMPSERVER 64v1.0 [Apache2.2.17, MySQL 5.1.52, PHPMyAdmin 3.3.8, PHP 5.3.3]. All of this is running on Server 2008R2x64. I’ve done several fresh installs before and have never encountered this. Please Help

  • From what I know, sometimes when we try to install WordPress on a database where another WordPress was already installed. So, try to create another database (or change the table prefix) and let us know, if it works!

    Excuse me Pothi but there was no previous install on the database. the “downloaded and setup 2x” meant I did the complete install 2 times prior to starting the thread.
    In any case I tried a third fresh install of 3.1 on Server 2008 R2x64. This time I used WAMP Server 2.1a 32bit with Apache 2.2.17, Php 5.3.5, MySQL 5.5.8, PhpMyAdmin amd SQL Buddy 1.3.2. I also down loaded a fresh instance of WP3.1.Everything is being installed on the D:\.
    I got the same blank page results upon attempting to run http://localhost/blog/wp-admin/install.php. I also tried it without the “blog” folder, http://localhost/wp-admin/install.php. Same results … Please Help


    Probably you have wrong database info at wp-config.php file. Try to access blog without wp-config.php file and wordpress installation wizard will create it automatically during the installation. Also it should show you database error if you type wrong info.

    It wasn’t the wp-config.php file or the database. It was the dbase user …
    In the documentation [phpMyAdmin] for setting up the user if you follow the instructions you will get “user@%. This is what I had.
    I removed that user and recerated the user following the instructions but I also selected local at the Host entry which gave me “user@localhost”.
    That was the solution.

    Thanks for your help and concern
