Support » Installing WordPress » Local Host help

  • I’m very new to wordpress and have followed through all the instructions carefully. However I think my lack of knowledge of php and mysql is where I am going wrong.

    as soon as i get to the wp-admin/install.php page I get this
    http://www.beginningboutique.com.au/blog/wp-admin/install.php

    It’s a common error most people have gotten and I’ve tried solving it as much as I can. I’m pretty certain its the DB host that is the problem. I’ve tried a variety of DB hosts and none seem to work.

    It might be something simple that I have missed but I would really appreciate anyones help.

  • if I put in the local host as wic001my.server-sql.com

    I get this

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_LNUMBER in e:\inetpub\esvc000995\blog\wp-includes\formatting.php on line 98
    WordPress database error Table ‘vs289631_1.wp_options’ doesn’t exist for query SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘siteurl’

    I duplicate your concern by clicking this link:

    http://www.beginningboutique.com.au/blog/wp-admin/install.php

    But I can reach your blog and your login page with no difficulty from here:

    …and I think the bunny lady just might give me creepy dreams now…. cool.

    By the way, my blog has been running for months, and if I type myblog.com/wp-admin/install.php in the address bar, the exact same thing happens. I think its just telling me I already installed WordPress!!!

    (grin!)
