Support » Installing WordPress » Install trouble, please help, errors listed below

  • Hi there
    I tried to do my first WP installation. Didnt work, even the available instructions were good and plenty were available.

    What I have done so far:
    registered domain
    set up a hosting account
    created a database
    uploaded files (twice , 1st to subdirectory, once that pancaked, directly to root)

    I keep getting the folllowing error msgs when I go to url
    http://www.birchbolete.com/wp-admin/install.php

    errors listed:

    Warning: Unknown(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/home/tatti/public_html/wp-admin/install.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/wwwbirc:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

    Warning: Unknown(/home/tatti/public_html/wp-admin/install.php): failed to open stream: Operation not permitted in Unknown on line 0

    Warning: Unknown(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/home/tatti/public_html/wp-admin/install.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/wwwbirc:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

    Warning: (null)() [function.include]: Failed opening ‘/home/tatti/public_html/wp-admin/install.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in Unknown on line 0

    my wp-confiog.php looks like this:
    <?php
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘tatti_tiamaria’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘tatti_tiko’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘tikojapiki’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix
    $table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’
    // to enable German language support.
    define (‘WPLANG’, ”);

    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__).’/’);
    require_once(ABSPATH.’wp-settings.php’);
    ?>

    my database (from cpanel) info looks like this:
    Current Databases:
    tatti_tiamaria

    Users in tiamaria
    tatti_tiko (Privileges: ALL PRIVILEGES)

    Connection Strings
    Perl $dbh = DBI->connect(“DBI:mysql:tatti_tiamaria:localhost”,”tatti_tiko”,”<PASSWORD HERE>”);
    PHP $dbh=mysql_connect (“localhost”, “tatti_tiko”, “<PASSWORD HERE>”) or die (‘I cannot connect to the database because: ‘ . mysql_error());
    mysql_select_db (“tatti_tiamaria”);

    Any ideas on where to start with this mess?
    I recently did a site with joomla. Joomla had a .php file you could upload and run, to check all files were present, any similar diagnostics tools available for wordpresss.

    Please help I am itching to start blogging.

    thanks

  • hi
    I checked my DB via php-Myadmin and no tables had been creqated at all, so apparently the install scripts crashed straight away.

    Also
    I have installed wordpress2.2 in folder www and then removed it and tried it at public_html, both gave the same errors.
    Normally every site needs index.html file at www folder on this server.
    server is operating on linux and php version 4.4.7, mysql is 4.1.22-standard and apache is 1.3.37 (Unix)

    hope someone can help with this,
    thanks to all in advance.

    Sami
