I’m trying to migrate my site from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and cannot for the life of me figure out how to install wordpress.
I set up hosting with Laughing Squid, I’ve had my domain name set, and I’m going through the installation on both WordPress.org and Laughing Squid and nothing is working. The step below is not working. Are there visual step by step instructions somewhere? Something a person with toddler-level web abilities can understand? A phone number I can call to get walked through it? Anything?
Open wp-admin/install.php in your browser. It will take you through the process to set up a wp-config.php file with your database connection details.
If for some reason this doesn’t work, don’t worry. It doesn’t work on all web hosts. Open up wp-config-sample.php with a text editor like WordPad or similar and fill in your database connection details.
Save the file as wp-config.php and upload it.
