    hi a i am quite new in this. i tried the installation process, but it wont work.
    my first step was that i upload the word press containn in its folder in to my main directory..
    then secondly i change CHMOD 666 the weblogs.com.changes.cache file.
    then i point my browser to wp-admin/install-config.php, then in the browser it shows “There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. You must CREATE ONE before moving on.. So i press the Create one link on the page.i goes to another page which says “The file ‘wp-config.php’ already exists. If you need to reset any of the configuration items in this file, please delete it first”. So i deleted the wp-config.php file from my directory. so i when back to the page wp-admin/install-config.php, then this message appers Sorry, I can’t write to the directory. You’ll have to either change the permissions on your WordPress directory or create your wp-config.php manually,from there onward i am lost.what will the next step be.help will be much appreciated.

    make the directory containin the index.php file chmod 777.
    or better make the config file urself 😉

    “then i point my browser to wp-admin/install-config.php, “
    Why ?
    After you have uploaded everything, go here
    wp-admin/install.php
    That will do the work.
    As for your config file, you will have a wp-sample-config.php, edit that so it has the correct details, then save it as “wp-config.php”.
    Upload that.
    That should help …..

    i have change the index.php file chmod to 777, how do i make the config file, is it by just using the wp-config sample file, and editing the db name, db user to my own accout.

    Yup 🙂
    Change each detail, and save it as “wp-config.php’
    Do this using a plain text editor (Notepad is fine)
