Support » Installing WordPress » I downloaded archive of wordpress and it doesn't want to install
6 years, 8 months ago
I downloaded 2.8.6 zip from http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/
and upload it here
but it keeps saying “There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.”
even after I click on button to create this config file.
should have been looking at other posts first man.
Ive posted this issue about 3 hours ago, but more specified
Not really sure, but any reason why you chose to install an old version of WordPress. 3.0 is the current version.
@spydie I don’t understand what you’re saying I can’t find any post from you about that;
@conorp Because I need plugins that don’t work with WP 3.0
Should I give up or is there any solution ?
Try using the wp-config-sample.php file to manually create a wp-config.php file.
Like MacManX said try doing it manually and just rename it when you finish plugging in your data.
@macmanx. I rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-condif.php and it says
Problem in wp-config.php – $base is set to BASE when it should be the path like “/” or “/blogs/”! Please fix it!
see by yourself
Did you more than you were supposed to for a basic install? Did you use a plain text editor to edit the file?
I’ll try again: I did just rename instead of changing db config.
