Apache vs Windows Install (6 posts)

    I sent my ISP the list of requiresments and they responded that they support WordPress but that I needed to get the Windows version because they don't support Apache modules on their Windows servers. I tried the install but get a fatal error. Not sure, can I install it like they say or not?

    There is no "Windows" version of WordPress, in the sense that the download will install on Windows, or Unix/Linux, or Mac, or just about any server host with PHP and MySQL. The "Apache modules" would only relate to setting up custom permalinks, which is not required to use WordPress.

    What is the exact error you're getting, and when during the installation?

    Thank you for your reply, makes me feel good that I can continue to hope to test drive WordPress.

    When I execute the install.php I get the following.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_bloginfo() in c:\websites\schnieber403\schnieber.com\wordpress\wp-includes\wp-db.php on line 304

    Oh, *that* error...

    The bug report on this:

    and best solution (download this wp-includes/wp-db.php and replace your current one with it) :

    I moved my site about four times in the past week and saw that error each time. In the end, it was because my wp-config.php file was not pointing to the correct database, or was pointing to no database whatsoever.
