Installation failed, so I followed the instructions in the WordPress file and opened wp-config-sample.php in Notepad, edited and saved as wp-config.php. It directed to upload it, but the directions didn't say where exactly to place that file. I put it in the /public directory, which is where I uploaded all of the WordPress files. I tried opening the wp-admin/install in the browser and again received the message "Error: PHP is not running WordPress requires that your web server is running PHP. Your server does not have PHP installed, or PHP is turned off."
I then tried placing wp-config.php in the wp-admin folder and opened wp-admin/install in the browser and received the same error message.
My server does have PHP. I checked, and it is PHP5 and is enabled.
Please help. I would use aplus.net's automatic WordPress installer, but with aplus.net it always tells me that WordPress cannot be installed to /public, so I end up having to put it in something like /public/blog, which I don't want.
Thanks so much for your time.
