Support » Installing WordPress » First install – can’t login (path problem)

  • I just installed WordPress for the first time. Installation ran smoothly and I see the default blog page. But when I try to log in I get the error

    Warning: main(/home/www/flitwick/html/blog//wp-admin/menu.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/www/flitwick/html/blog/wp-admin/admin.php on line 40

    It’s a host php.ini setting which you cannot change.
    I asked for your host name so we could search that here to see if others had any issues.

    It’s a small local provider in Germany, doubtful that anybody else here shares webspace there. But the specific setting would be interesting because I can check with phpinfo(); and post the results here.
