But I’m not able to enter the WordPress API key. When I click on a “You must enter your WordPress.com API key for it to work.” prompt I get an error page that only says “Cannot load akismet-key-config.”.
I thought maybe this was because of where I’m hosting, but I installed Akismet on another blog on the same server (version 2.6 though) and it worked fine.
Did I mess up the installation? I’m running this installation out of a different directly from the blog address. Could that be related? Thanks for tips.
dwitzel — did you also get the problem where the appearance editor and plugins editor isn’t accessible through the Dashboard? I found a Web site that addresses this but they say it’s permissions and I’m reluctant to change my permissions (CHMOD). My host tried that and it didn’t work.
