install.php: Failed at Step 3

  • My configuration:
    Apache/1.3.29 (Unix) PHP/4.3.4
    I searched through the forum and found that many people got the same error: installation failed at step 3. I am not able to fix my problem by the solutions provided though. The page doesn’t load in IE and doesn’t give me any error messages. It went through step 1 and 2 fine. Does anyone have a fix? Thanks!

  • mySQL is 3.23.32

    Which version of WordPress are you trying to install? The current release is 1.0.2 and the current beta/nightly releases will be 1.2 something.

    i tried both. same problem! “Page cannot be displayed!”

    Did you edit your wp-config.php using MS word? If you used anything but the simplest text editor, you might have some problems due to the editor mucking up the file with formatting and stuff.

    yeah, we cant rule that possibility out! 🙂
    we get some real noobies here…
    me comes to mind! 🙂
