Greetings, I'm new to WP and also to MySQL. I've tried to install WordPress various times and each time my attempts are foiled. I've searched the 'installation' DB of questions here, and although I've come across some with similar problems, none of their solutions seem to work for me. So I thought I'd post, myself...
First Iâ€™d like to know if my host has set up what needs to be done â€“ no sense go through the installation if the DB wasnâ€™t set up properly. I was provided with DB username/DB password/DB name/and host.
I've posted a few desktop captures of my phpMYAdmin control panel to give you an idea of where I'm coming from: http://www.bookyeti.com/myphpadmin.jpg
I have followed the instructions for installation to a tee. I have all the DB username/DB password/DB name/and host filled in wp-config.php. I've uploaded everything to my domain (in a separate "wordpress" directory). I've tried to install by going to http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php. For the sake of installation ease, I've set all the permissions to the highest they can go â€“ so the permissions are obviously not the problem in this case.
Here is the error message I get every timeâ€¦
Warning: main(/usr/home/sites/www.bookyeti.com/web/wordpress/wp-includes/functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/home/sites/www.bookyeti.com/web/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 87
Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/usr/home/sites/www.bookyeti.com/web/wordpress/wp-includes/functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/share/pear') in /usr/home/sites/www.bookyeti.com/web/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 87
I am so DETERMINED to get it to work! Can somebody pretty-please lend me some of their WordPress installation wisdom?
