I have installed WordPress several times with varying results. My OS is Windows XP. Web server is ProtoNova. I am also running a scripting language Nuclear Vision which bears some similarities to Cold Fusion but costs a fraction of the price. I have PHP 4.3.5 installed and successfully running with the web server. I have this web server running on a home network using a port forwarding service, TZO.com so I have a dynamic ip address which is mapped to a url via the setup with TZO. I have high speed cable access. The web site is up and running – has been for nearly a year so all of that is working relatively well; however, I do get some quirky results when I try to use/setup WordPress which by the way appears to be great software. I just need to get some kinks worked out. I get various errors during install and whenever I try to update option for example. “Notice:Undefined index:step in c:\progra~1\protonova\httproot\wordpress\wp-admin\install-config.php on line 13” I am now using the lastest nightly build. Builds earlier than 4/15/2004 would not work at all. Whenever I attempt to login I get a page not found error but if I point the browser to the index page I get to the blog, refresh, and then I have the edit this available to me and I can edit the entry, access my profile, etc. Whenever I save or logout, I get the same page not found error but I can return to the blog by pointing the browser to the index page and refresh and I am logged out, etc. Any suggestions? I created a separate database for WordPress rather than use my existing database which I use on my site already.
