HTTP 404 – when running “install.php” script
I installed WordPress in my webserver “www.websitesource.com”.
The minimum installation requirements are ok. AndI have created MySql DB and database user and permission ok.
I have customised the “wp-config-sample.php” file and had renamed it “wp-config.php”
I uploaded everything into my webserver “mydomain.com/blog”
[I used my actual domain name instead of “mydomain.com”]
After uploading I checked and found that all the necessary folders and associated files were in their correct places in the “blog” folder. There were 4 subfolders in the “blog” folder: wp-admin, wp-content, wp-images, wp-includes.
When I run http://mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php from the IE browser address I got File not found error message.
I also tried reinstalling all the WordPress folders and files in the root directory “/” . When I run the installation scrip http://mydomain.com/wp-admin/install.php I also encountered “HTTP 404 – File not found” message.
The “install.php” file is correctly located in the “wp-admin” subdirectory.
The file name “wp-config.php” is spelt correctly.
I don’t know what’s wrong. Can anybody help, please?
