    Having trouble installing wordpress. Have PHP running and MYsql latest versions as of 040816.
    I put a print out in the install.php file and it prints that at the beginning of the file. So I know it gets into the file.
    Is there a version of the install.php file with debugging code so I can see where it hands up?
    I really think you should show progress in that file so that one knows what errors to report here.
    I am not sure what to do next.
    It is not that I get a blank page at the end of the install process. It is rather more like the install process does not go anywere.

    If I try to insert print statements I get errors like
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in c:\cutting.web\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\install.php on line 15
    which just means I put the print statement in the wrong place. But this shows that it is accessing the code in install.php
    So where does it go wrong?
    How about a debugging version. I don't know where to put the print statements in PHP.

    Do you have WP installed? Why are you trying to put print it anything before it's installed? Not being mean just curious. :)

    Neither do I .... but a lot of us here are used to dealing with install errors, and we very rarely fail.
    We do need to know details that I asked above though, and anything else about your system that you think could be important.

    WordPress is installed in the htdocs directory.
    The only thing strange about my setup is that I am using virtual hosts in Apache.
    However, it seems that this is working ok. I ran a test program that could get to PHP from that directory.

    Bleeding edge or unstable builds?

    unstable - not the cvs stuff.
    It's not that bad either :)

    I don't see how you get to the unstable versions. All I can get to is under the CBS nightly builds. Where is the link to the unstable versions?

    I only get the error in IE not in Netscape. It just dies with no warning in Netscape.

    I think... phpmyadmin would be a better idea for this fellow, dont you? just get him the MySQL stuff and cut/paste it in there... right?

    Looks like the whole install.php file will not fit here.
