I'm very new to Word Press, trying to install it as a CMS (using NameCheap webhosting) and I seem to be unable to install it no matter how closely I follow the instructions.
I threw the files into the root of public_html and tried to navigate to mydomain.com/wp-admin/install.php, which failed because there was no wp-admin folder. Once I figured out the install.php file was in the root of the domain, I tried running mydomain.com/install.php and got the following errors:
Warning: require_once(/home/MyUser/wp-load.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/MyUser/public_html/install.php on line 36
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/MyUser/wp-load.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/MyUser/public_html/install.php on line 36
The files listed in the error message do exist in the public_html directory and nothing I'm finding on the support site makes enough sense to me to solve the problem. If anyone could assist me, and be as descriptive in questions / answers as possible, I would appreciate it.
