I don't get it (8 posts)

    I've downloaded, unzipped and went to readme, it came up and I clicked on wp-admin/install.php I get nothing or random BS and boxes to fill that I can't read what it wants. I did the "fix" and that doesn't work.

    I have a web page with both Free webs and Vista print, but pages I own the domain. I would love to use this. But I can't find out how to get it working.

    If that isn't bad enough My net keeps going out (in a hotel at the moment). And that just pisses me off to no end. I have an account with the Bank as I should, but I have no way of getting this working. So much for easy install as I've been looking on this and tying things and nothing works.

    Help.

    You're supposed to upload it and run it on a web server which has PHP and MySQL installed.

    This is mentioned in the requirements.

    You might have to get a hosting plan also. I use ipage.com for my site. They have really good customer support.
