I have a domain name and holding site already online via a company called LCN.
I created it in dreamweaver, its html.
So I upgraded my account to have sql database. thats done.
I downloaded the wordpress zip file, unzipped it and then loaded it into my ftp directory.
when I try to open the wp-admin/install.php in either firefox of safari it just either comes up as plain text code on screen or it tries to download something but it doesnt do anything.
So I manually configured the sample php with my database details and added that to my ftp directory along with the rest of the word press stuff.
When I try to wp-admin/install.php what am I supposed to do? I really dont understand what I should be doing. Im a complete novice and I have never used wordpress before. I just wanted to get the basic thing set up so that someone else can help me design my website.
what am I doing wrong please?
