Problem "It doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file." Using easy PHP (2 posts)

    I have installed WordPress before a couple of month ago, but I never worked with it. Now I'm going to install it again. I use EasyPHP

    What I have done:
    1. Created a new database called "wordpress". Created a user. Changed the privelige for this user to be able to do all things. (this is probably the step I am a little unsure if I have done the right way)

    1. Edited the wp-config-sample.php file and changed the name to wp-config.

    2. Taken all the files in the folder "wordpress" and put them in the folder "www" in the easyPHP folder.

    3. Pressed the "readme.html" and then pressed the link "/wp-admin/install.php" on Step 5.

    Then I get the error:

    define('WP_INSTALLING', true);
    if (!file_exists('../wp-config.php'))
    die("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.");


    Would be great if I could get some help.

    Thank you!

    "2. Taken all the files in the folder "wordpress" and put them in the folder "www" in the easyPHP folder."

    I'm a little confused here.
    The files in the folder "wordpress" that's on your machine, need to be FTP'd up to your site wherever you plan on having wordpress reside. be that in the root folder, or under a subfolder. I'm not sure why you're using the easyPHP folder, or even where that is...

    Have I misread what you wrote, or did you put the files in the wrong folder?

    Once they're in the root folder (should all go right under the "www" if you want it set up to be your entire site and not in a subfolder) then you'd go to http: // www .yoursite.com/wp-admin/install.php (minus spaces) and things should roll fine from there...
