Support » Installing WordPress » Can't get intall.php to work

  • Resolved 1DMF



    I have created a folder for wordpress on our web server and uploaded the extracted download.

    I have set up DNS for the sub domain I want to run it on.

    I then navigate in my browser to mydomain/wp-admin/install.php

    All I get is a blank page, what am I doing wrong?

    Have you checked the PHP is running properly on the server?

    It’s OK I was being a fool.

    But Yes PHP is installed and working correctly.

    I wrongly assumed, that when I read WP worked on IIS, that they meant a windows platform inclusing MS SQL.

    This however isn’t the case, It would seem I need to install basically everything that is Linux based onto my windows server from apache to mySQL.

    This is something I am not prepared to do as it is a production server runing many websites under IIS6 , MS SQL and active state perl.

    Although I do have PHP installed and running for some of my website apps, I cannot afford to run the risk of corrupting this server, or opening up security holes with additional webserver software or affecting MS SQL and it’s performace by also running mySQL on the box.

    I’m going to install everything locally on my WINXP machine just so I can play with WP and see if it meets our needs.


    This is not resolved, but I’ll start a new thread!
