I need help

  • I set up the config correctly, saving it as a php file. I uploaded everything using ASCII and when I launch install it says:
    wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.”); require_once(‘../wp-config.php’); require(‘upgrade-functions.php’); if (isset($_GET[‘step’])) $step = $_GET[‘step’]; else $step = 0; ?>
    so I deleted my database and did it again, and i got the same message. if anyone can help i would appreciate it.

  • Did you rename it from sample-wp-config.php to just wp-config.php?

    Do you have php installed ?
    PHP Info
    * Paste this into a new Notepad / BBEdit file
    * <?php phpinfo(); ?>
    * Save as ‘info.php’
    * Upload to server. Visit in your browser (www.example.com/info.php)
    * That will give you info about your php version

    i did rename it to wp-config.php. and my php version is 4.3.9. and i still get that message.

    If you’re seeing that information in your browser, then PHP isn’t running.

    I just checked with my hosting service to see if my PHP was working properly and they said that it was. SO I thought that it was all my fault and I deleted everything and started over again. Now I get this message…
    We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
    * Are you sure it exists?
    * Your database name is currently specified as jessblog_wordpress. Is this correct?
    * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?
    However, I know that this database is there and my username and password are all ok.
    I know I’m a pain, but I’m knew to PHP and MySQL. Thanks.

    Have you tried using just “jessblog” as your database name?

    yea, but it automatically adds something at the end of it like jessblog_whatever the database name it here.
