I’ve been working on installing WP onto my spankin’ new domain name intermittently all day, and I’m kinda frustrated now. I’ve read the Codex, and the Everyman’s WP Install PDF. I’ve deleted and recreated a mySQL database, checked the code, and tried and retried the database and username.
I’m on a Mac using TextEdit, Cyberduck, and Firefox. I’ve tried uploading the wp files to both the “home1” directory, and to a “blog” directory, but no matter what I try, when I attempt to run mydomain.com/wp-admin/install.php (or mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php), I get the following:
The requested URL /wp-admin/install.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I’ve checked to make sure install.php is in the wp-admin directory, and it is.
I know I’m probably missing something incredibly easy and/or stupid, but I’m really hoping someone here can shed some light for me. Thanks!
