Support » Installing WordPress » ACK I’m hopeless, having trouble installing

    I just signed up with LiquidWeb, got my domain name registered, and now I’m trying to install WordPress. I’ve been trying to follow the installation instructions perfectly, but when I try to install I get this:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/install.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Can anyone help? I’m sorry, I’m a total newbie when it comes to this…

    Did you unpack the files on your server ?

    Where did you put these files ? Into the main directory or in a subfolder (like ‘wp’) ?

    If it’s a subfolder, you have to put it like that: /wp/wp-admin/install.php

    I think that may be my problem. I tried to follow the instructions using FileZilla, but I’m not sure that any of the files actually made it to my server.

    FileZilla is quite good, take a look at the server, if the files are there and use the corresponding url.
    I had a problem with a provider, who in some strange way cached their webspace, so it took my uploads a few minutes to be available from www.
