Idiots Guide to Starting Up (5 posts)

    I've had an install of the latest WordPress (1.5.1 ?) done for me by DreamHost. Lots of likely looking files have turned up in a wordpress directory under my domain, but I get errors when I launch any of the php pages. The "wordpress/index.php" gives me errors concerning missing files.

    If I have a successful install - which is the normal wordpress launch page ?
    This is my first WordPress install - do I have the same bug reported by podz and johnnycannuk ?

    Bug ?
    Where is your install ?

    DreamHost's one-click install only uploads the files and create the database for you. The rest of the instructions are in the email that DreamHost sent you after running their installer. Did you follow those instructions? Specifically, the part about running install.php.

    I did, but all I get is errors.

    The "install.php" file is not in the wordpress/wp-admin directory - so all I get is Not Found. Nor is there a "readme.html". I can find neither file in any directory.

    You should try running the one-click installer again, or install WordPress manually.
