Support » Installing WordPress » 5 Minute Install: Day 3

  • I got nothing on my last post. I’ll try again.

    When I open /wp-admin/install.php – the file is there, but it opens in notepad as code. Why does that happen, and how can I fix it.

    Reading through that code, it says that my wpconfig file can not be found. That seems to be a common problem, but I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong. My hosting service created a username,, they set up a database that they call x_babygotbooks_com, they assigned me a password xxx, and the server is clearly designated as localhost. My edit to my wpconfig looks like this:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘x_babygotbooks_c’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘xxx’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
