404 error when installing on 1and1 site

  • Hello!
    I’ve been trying to install WordPress on my website, but hitting a wall.
    I’ve already set up a MySQL database, modified the database name, user name, password and host name information in the config.php file for WordPress.
    The location of the files that I uploaded to my site directory via FTP is http://www.yaegerdental.com/blog
    When I try to go to http://www.yaegerdental.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php I hit an error 404 page.
    I’ve tried wiping out my site directory of the WordPress files and starting over, and even starting a new SQL database to see if that was the problem, but I get the same results.
    Does anyone have any ideas of how to fix this little headache of a problem?
    Thanks in advance!

    Try re-uploading all files & folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks for the quick reply, esmi, however…
    I cleared everything that I’ve done, including re-downloading the required wordpress zip, but I’ve run into the same issue. When I get to the step where I visit www.”mydomain”.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php I still get a 404 error. Just for fun, I tried opening the install.php file on my computer, and I at least see WP logos and whatnot show up in my browser.
    Is the problem that I’m trying to use WP via the “/blog” sub-directory? I thought I followed all the install tutorials to the “T” so I’m at a loss as to where the issue is.

    You can install WP in a sub-dir such as 2blog” but it sounds like you’re not uploading all of the files & folders.
