Support » Installing WordPress » object not found – error 404 when attempting to run installation…..

  • Hello,

    I am a first time wordpress user, and am attempting to upload the wordpress files to my website control panel – http://www.helenclifton.com – via an ftp, cyberduck.

    I am uploading them to what I believe is the root directory, the httpdocs file. I can’t see it would be anything else?

    I edited the whp-config.php file with the necessary details, (database name wordpress, database username and password).

    All the files have uploaded fine. I just copied all of them from the folder that appeared on my desktop – is this causing a problem? Am I uploading too many? Is says on the wordpress instructions to upload just the files, and not the directory – what is the directory?

    When the files transferred, I typed in http://www.helenclifton.com/wp-admin/install.php – to install –

    And this came up –

    Object not found!

    The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 404
    http://www.helenclifton.com

    Apache/2.2.8 (Linux/SUSE)

    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Or is it one for the server administrator?

    Many, many thanks,
    Helen

  • You need to upload the entire contents of the wordpress folder – all files plus 3 complete folders (wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes).
