404 and 550 errors wp.org folder placement
Hi, I’m having trouble installing WP.org and I’m not sure why. I have looked in the forums and haven’t found a solution to my specific problem. My job has a site set up through wordpress.com and am trying to install wordpress.org. I came into this position after the site domains etc were set up. I downloaded, unzipped and uploaded the wordpress folder, but when I go to the install.php link, I get a 404 error.
I think the problem is that I’m not positive that the folder is uploaded in the correct place, but I’m having trouble putting it anywhere but its current location because I get 550 permission denied messages when I try.
Right now, I have the wordpress folder on my desktop. In my ftp, there are the following folders for the directory:
“/” contains awstats, backup, logs, private, stats and www.
When I click on “/www” this folder contains only another folder marked “www.”
Clicking on that second folder (“/www/www”) contains cgi-bin, src, some random html files. This last folder is the only one I can upload the wordpress folder to, but that puts it at “/www/www/wordpress” How can I get this folder into the right placement so that I can install wordpress.org??
Any help at all is appreciated.
