404 Error When Trying to Access www.somedomain.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php (3 posts)

    I just very diligently ran through all the steps for setting up/installing WordPress on my Web server. I created the database and created a user with all permissions. I downloaded WordPress and used FTP to upload it to my site. Since I want it to be somedomain.com/blog, I renamed WordPress to "blog" before uploading it.

    When I go to http://www.superheromarketing.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php, it gives me a 404 error. However, when I go into cPanel's file manager, I can click on blog and it shows the folder wp-admin, and then wp-admin shows that install.php is a part of the folder. So the files are where they are supposed to be, and I am still getting a 404 error.

    How can I fix this?

    1. Make an index file for your root directory: it is open and unsafe:
    2. As you can see: there is no "blog" directory there.
    3. Your should upload everything ALWAYS in the public_html directory
