I’ve installed Instant WordPress on my local computer so I can perform development without impacting the WordPress website I webmaster. I installed the Duplicator plugin on my production website and on the Instant WordPress on my home computer. I downloaded the production duplicator package and the installer to my home computer. I cannot get the installer to work.
Clicking on the install.php asks what to open it with. If I open it in IE9 it opens an IE download window which is blank. In Google the .php is displayed as a text file. The video doesn’t tell you how to launch the installed. I tried going to the .php file using IE directly, but it cannot find it (404). I tried launching Instant WordPress and moving the install.php file to various directories but it fails to launch. One thing I notice is that the Installer download button in the Duplicator panel is not on the same line as the package but about above it?
What am I missing? Is the Duplicator plugin not creating the installer correctly? Or does the installer have to be somewhere in particular for it to work? How come the Duplicator plugin doesn’t have an Install button where you specify where the package is and it loads it?
