    I see it's installed now. Can you tell me how you fixed it as I am having the same problem? If I need to go back to my ISP I'd like to be able to tell them what I want them to do.

    Many thanks

    I feel really dumb with trying to get this to work over a 24hour period with no luck. I think I'm in the same spot as the original poster.

    This is the error I get The requested URL /cgi-bin/php/blog/index.php was not found on this server. Though the URL shows http://www.leydavega.com/blog/index.php I don't know what "cgi-bin" is.

    So in case anyone runs into this issue, in my case it was all on my host (hostway.com) to fix manually. As soon as they did their part I finally got "successfully installed" screen from WordPress. YAY. It only took 2 days...
