Support » Installing WordPress » fatal error when installing

  • Resolved ericshun


    I followed the instructions and created a database for the blog and uploaded the files and changed the config for the username, pw, and database but when I go to the install file I get this error.

    Warning: main(/var/www/html/blog/wp-includes/script-loader.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/blog/wp-settings.php on line 203

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘/var/www/html/blog/wp-includes/script-loader.php’ (include_path=’.:/php/includes:/usr/share/php’) in /var/www/html/blog/wp-settings.php on line 203

    This is received when I go to this address which is where I believe i’m supposed to go to to install it. Any ideas how to resolve this error? Thanks!

  • Make sure you uploaded all files (and didn’t delete anything)! There’s a file called wp-settings.php that’s missing from your blog folder.

    I see the file on the server though. I’m going to re upload that file and try again.

    edit: reuploaded and no change. could it be that I put something wrong in the config file or does this mean that everything is going through and its just something with the file?

    I had a similar problem. I originally downloaded the zip file. When using the gzip file it worked perfectly.
