Support » Installing WordPress » Can someone delete "Famous 5-minute install" ?

  • My first time to ever try WordPress. How about “Famous install have fun” ?

    This just sets me up for discouragement. It is similar to the recipe that says it only takes 10 minutes. Three hours later you are screaming and cursing or- fetal.

    I should know when the open the .php in the browser thing doesn’t work and then I don’t know what a text editor is that this is going to be really hell.

    Oh well, I’ll try to have fun, anyway.

    Was there a question in there?

    Actually in title.

    Can someone delete “Famous 5 – minute install ?”

    But seriously,

    What does it mean open up the .php file with text editor- I have Word Pad ? I didn’t know anything could be opened up from text editor. When I put in the address in my browser it took me to a website that said this domain might be for sale..

    I’m guessing the first place to go is the read me html after the download.

    Exactly what it says. Wordpad is not a text editor. Notepad is.

    Which .php file are you trying to open? wp-config-sample.php? If so, don’t bother. WordPress can create your wp-config.php file for you as part of the installation process. Once everything has been uploaded, just navigate to http://your_domain/wp-admin/install.php to start the installation.
