    Well, you aren’t supposed to visit the wp-config.php file in a browser. Follow this guide to complete the installation:

    Yeah I understand that, i’ve installed wp a few times and i know you can go directly to wp-config.php in the broswer and it’ll say “you haven’t created one blah blah” and it will let you fill it in the wizard that comes next.

    So will visiting the install script at wp-admin/install.php . Try that instead.

    nice, now it’s telling

    “This website is temporarily unavailable, please try again later.”

    nothing to do with wordpress, but F godaddy. i’ll try it when it’s available.

    thanks
