[resolved] 404 looking for install.php (6 posts)

    This is my first WP site that I'm trying to create on a separate server from WordPress. I have followed all the appropriate steps to install WordPress onto my server but when I try to run install.php in my browser, I get a 404 error.

    I have uploaded wordpress into a sub-directory on my server titled "wordpress" through Filezilla. I am trying to access install.php through this web address:


    Furthermore, when I try to access ANY address, including just web/content, I get a 404.

    I changed the DNS over and everything. The only thing that works is when I go to just caliperwake.com where I get the Laughing Squid welcome screen that tells me I can begin editing my website.

    Any help would be great!

    I went to this link:


    And a WordPress page shows up, an error page but still a page. So I don't know if you were trying to use the wrong link or what.

    Try http://www.caliperwake.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    But it looks like you now have a database connection issue.
