Can’t Install WP1.0.1

  • Ok — Trying to install wp 1.0.1 (from sourceforge). No go.
    I’ve now read enough threads to realize that the install issues are not simply related to my setup, which happens to be: Windows XP Pro / IIS5.1 / PHP 4.3.4.4 / MySql 4.?
    The current build is simply gimpy.
    The low-down? (following instructions to a tee)
    A couple of UNDEFINED errors? (ok, reporting may be a bit high)
    Warnings and notices (below), then the install doesn’t find this magical config file…
    ok, so I’ve checked, and rechecked my rights. Full Rights to both IUSR_ & IWAM_
    even created the config file from scratch…
    re-run the install.php –> finally –>
    “It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet. Try running

      install.php

    .”
    This message comes from the file called “install.php” — (which also has a link that should point to current directoy, but instead points to wp-admin/install.php, so I get “wp-admin/wp-admin/install.php” — obviously a naughty include — but obviously not ready for prime-time).
    I’m done. I’ll try again when wp is stable.
    BTW- promised error messages:
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 121
    Notice: Undefined variable: handle in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 142
    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 142
    Warning: chmod(): No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 143
    All right sparky! You’ve made it through this part of the installation. WordPress can now communicate with your database. If you are ready, time now to run the install!

  • Are you upgrading or doing a fresh install?

    Same type of error for me – first time install
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/royal618/public_html/wp/wp-admin/install-config.php on line 121
    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/royal618/public_html/wp/wp-admin/install-config.php on line 142

    I had the same problems (as Royal618) trying to install on Windows XP. Copying wp-config-sample.php manually to wp-config.php (and then editing the contents of it) was a workaround for me. On XP the file doesn’t get created successfully by the script (looks line the line 142 message?).
    There were then a bunch of SQL errors in step 3 of the install (mostly blank option id’s, and attempts to write duplicate lines). However it does seem to be up and running so far despite the SQL messages.

    I have the same problem, fresh install on FreeBSD. The problem arises because of an undefined array $configFile on line 121 of install-config.php, and a reference to $handle on line 142.
    As far as I can tell, $configFile is not used or defined anywhere in the entire WP directory tree. If I understand the script right, there seems to be a missing line like:
    $configFile=file(‘../wp-config-sample.php’);
    $handle appears to refer to ../wp-config.php which should have been opened for writing in a missing line like:
    $handle=fopen(‘../wp-config.php’, ‘w’);

    I also got these error messages. Is there any way for us to install WordPress?

    Yes, same problem here. The config file creator in this version of wp is broken.

    I would suggest your try WP 1.02. It’s not released yet, but if you think you can help testing it, it’s supposed to fix most (if not all) problems listed here.
    I installed it and have been using it for the past few days (ok, 24hrs) without problems.
