[Resolved] Can't install… Just error page.

    Hello,

    I’m trying to install wordpress; I’ve already reconfigured the config file with my information, pointed my name servers in the right direction, and uploaded everything through a File Tranfer Protocal (FTP) unit… aka, FileZilla, but when I try to access the installationg page, namely:

    “skiing-tips-and-tricks.com/wp-admin/install.php”

    But for some reason all that appears is error page!

    I’m using http://www.000webhost.com/

    Thank you!

    Did you install WordPress in a sub-directory (folder) or at the root of your site? If it’s in a folder, then you’ll need to alter your path to

    skiing-tips-and-tricks.com/your-directory-name-here/wp-admin/install.php

    I’m sorry, I don’t quite understand… Do you mind telling me how exactly I can do that?

    By the way, thank you!

    Where did you install WordPress. Is it in a folder called “wordpress” or “blog” or something else?

    goldenbible,

    This is 99% wrong database info in wp-config.php. Check it out, you need to use mysql[number].000webhost.com instead of localhost, where [number] is the number of server. You can see correct mysql server name at your 000webhost hosting account’s dashboard.

    zoonini:

    I installed it and it’s in a folder called “wordpress”.

    arkgroup:

    I made sureI had the correct host name… I used mysql11.000webhost.com in the host name area… I made sure all of that was in order.

    Thank you!

    I installed it and it’s in a folder called “wordpress”.

    Then your install file should be here:

    skiing-tips-and-tricks.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    p.s. add http://www. before the above link – didn’t want to make it clickable here.

    When you go on this url as you have wordpress files and folders in wordpress folder
    http://skiing-tips-and-tricks.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    Get error because looks like you have not entered database name in wp-config.php file

    * Are you sure it exists?
    * Does the user a9665558_joshua have permission to use the database_name_here database?
    * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_database_name_here. Could that be the problem?

    I’m sorry, I’m not very good at this type of thing… Here’s what I’ve got:

    » MySQL Database » MySQL User » MySQL Host
    a9665558_wp a9665558_joshua mysql11.000webhost.com

    I uploaded the WordPress folder and just left the name at WordPress, I’m not sure what that means to be honest…

    I apologize for being so incompetent, I just honestly don’t understand exactly what your talking about here… Here’s what my config file says:

    You’re missing a database name:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’);

    You need to replace database_name_here with a9665558_wp (if the above is correct)

    OH!!! Thank you! I’ll put that information in in a minute, thank you once again :-).

    Instead of you editing the wp-config.php file you can let the install program create the file for you if you want to do that just delete the wp-config.php file and leave the sample config there and run install program

    I thought that would’ve fixed it up, but it’s still showing a error message when I go to the website “http://skiing-tips-and-tricks.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php”…

    Thank you!

    govpatel,

    I’m not sure, what good would doing that do?

    @goldenbible

    govpatel,

    I just did what you suggested, there still isn’t a change though…

    Thanks anyway!

    I could always email you my FTP user name/host/password so that you could have a look yourself…
