[resolved] Installation errors "Failed to open stream..." WP 2.0 Fresh Install (3 posts)

    I unzipped the package and edited the wp_config.php as per the instructions.

    I got this error when opening install.php in my browser:

    Warning: main(/home/ferret/www/wordpress/wp-settings.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ferret/www/wordpress/wp-config.php on line 20

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/ferret/www/wordpress/wp-settings.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/ferret/www/wordpress/wp-config.php on line 20

    My server is Gentoo, using Apache, and MySql and the databases are created and entered in the wp_config.php file.

    The path /usr/lib/php would be wrong to look for the file "wp_config.php" in, if that's what it's doing? What am I missing or doing wrong here? I have looked in the documentation to try to find the answer to this question, but maybe I have been looking in the wrong places?

    oh yes, sorry, dir is http://www.midnightferret.com/wordpress/

    so I go to http://www.midnightferret/wordpress/install.php

    Oh yes, and line 20 of wp-config.php looks like this:

    where "ABSPATH" is defined in line 19:
    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');
