Support » Installing WordPress » More details… Please help :(

  • This is my wp-config.php file:


    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘db2099e’); // The name of the database

    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘us2099e’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘XXXXXXXXX’); // …and password

    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix

    $table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the

    // chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.

    // For example, install to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German language support.

    define (‘WPLANG’, ”);

    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__).’/’);



    I believe I have entered everything right? Please confirm this. Now I try to run:

    and I get this:

    Fatal error: Failed opening required ‘//wp-settings.php’ (include_path=”) in //wp-config.php on line 20

    What do I need to do? Thanks for your time.

  • The 4 pieces of info look fine… it just cannot find the wp-settings.php file.
    What I am wondering why are there 2 slashes [//] before the wp-settings.php filename? Is your server adding those?

    yes it seems like my server is adding those… what can i do to make it find the wp-settings.php file?

    updated location:

    If it is hosted by a company, I’d contact my host about those slashes.
    If you are hosting it – try to find a forum where they are specialized in server issues.

    why would the server add the slashes for tho? i really don’t think it’s a server issue.


    this is what my hosting company sent back to me:

    The issue that you’re experiencing with the installation of your blog software is solely supported by and the vendor. This is a known issue with this software and will have to be directly addressed by the vendor. Thanks for your patience.

    im gonna scream 🙁


    The answer you got: “This is a known issue with this software” must be wrong. This is the first time I see something like this in the forum.
    WordPress wouldn’t do this ( the // ) if the files are not corrupted in some way.
