  • This is the message I get after installation:

    __(‘Already Installed’).’

    ‘.__(‘You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.’).’
    ‘);} switch($step) { case 0: case 1: // in case people are directly linking to this display_header(); ?>

    ReadMe documentation at your leisure. Otherwise, just fill in the information below and you\’ll be on your way to using the most extendable and powerful personal publishing platform in the world.’), ‘../readme.html’); ?>

    error) ) wp_die($wpdb->error->get_error_message()); display_header(); // Fill in the data we gathered $weblog_title = stripslashes($_POST[‘weblog_title’]); $admin_email = stripslashes($_POST[‘admin_email’]); $public = (int) $_POST[‘blog_public’]; // check e-mail address if (empty($admin_email)) { // TODO: poka-yoke die(‘

    ‘.__(“ERROR: you must provide an e-mail address.”).’
    ‘); } else if (!is_email($admin_email)) { // TODO: poka-yoke die(‘

    ‘.__(‘ERROR: that isn’t a valid e-mail address. E-mail addresses look like:‘).’
    ‘); } $wpdb->show_errors(); $result = wp_install($weblog_title, ‘admin’, $admin_email, $public); extract($result, EXTR_SKIP); ?>


    ‘.__(‘Note that password carefully! It is a random password that was generated just for you.’).”; ?>

    What am I supposed to do now?????

  • Never mind – I figured it out.

    Problem solved.


    and the resolution was?
    It might help others in searches.


    I got the same problem. So what did you do?

    Ditto, I cannot figure out how to get around this. How did you do it?

    Same here. Deegz, how did you some the problem.

    Ok, I know I’m onto something. After thoroughly reading the instructions (always helpful) and paying close attention to the config sample file, I realize that I need to enter in specific information in order for the setup to work, such as my db (assuming that means database) name, user name, password, etc. However, I still do not quite understand what these terms mean. any way I can find out?

    EDIT: After once again taking the time to calm down and look around for clues to solving this conundrum, I realize there is a whole FAQ for installation. If the 5-minute install thing isnt working for you, as it isnt for me, look there. It’ll probably have the answers you are looking for.

    Ok folks, for me, there was nothing wrong with the installation. I just needed to follow the instructions.

    So pull up your favorite web browser and enter:

    The error page only comes up if you directly open the install.php file.
