No wp-config.php file error message, even after creation (3 posts)

    I just installed WordPress 3.6 and some other things like MySQL, PHP, Apache and stuff like that.

    I'm running WordPress local on my PC - using Ubutnu 13.04.

    I get this message:

    There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.
    
    Need more help? We got it.
    
    You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.
    
    Create a Configuration File

    I followed the steps at the website, but still get the same message. It says that I have to create it manually, however.

    Should I update WordPress at some place or what is wrong?

    Make a copy of wp-config-sample.php and rename it wp-config.php. Edit it according to these instructions http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php. Then copy it back to the root folder.

    I did exactly that, but I still get the error.

    The root folder is the folder with the wp-config-sample.php in it? I putted it there.

    See a screenshot right here: http://i44.tinypic.com/scfblf.png
