I was wondering if anyone had a link to some detailed instructions on how to do this. I initially started with apt-get, but then found that someone said to forget that and just unzip to /var/www/ and go from there.
it seems like my LAMP install might be wonky (meaning i've screwed something up). when i go to create the wp-config.php file, i get an immediate "Error connecting to database" message. like it's not even seeing mysql.
currently i've been trying these instructions:
but the line in step 3:
sed 's/www/www\/wordpress/g' default > wordpress
returns the error "sed: can't read default: No such file or directory"
i have a site that i built under WAMP and everything was smooth. when i tried migrating it to Ubuntu, it just didn't work. that's when i tried simply starting a wp site from scratch and that also doesn't work, so i'm thinking it's something about my LAMP setup that i've got wrong.
anyone have any thoughts or guidelines??
