Support » Installing WordPress » Problems Installing WordPress 3.3.2

  • I just installed the latest WordPress 3.3.2 to my website and nothing is showing up. I fixed the wp-config-sample.php using my new MySQL name, username, password, and localhost and saved it as wp-config.php but nothing is showing up. This is what I get when I type in my web address:

    Am I doing anything wrong? How can I fix this? I would like to know. Thanks.

  • Have a look at:

    Are you really sure, that everything is correct in you wp-config.php ?
    And have you completed the install process?

    May be you have entered wrong database host name. Check your database details and re-enter them. Check out this tutorial.

    Everything is correct in my wp-config.php file and I completed the install process but why do I keep getting these error messages?

    You site gives me HTTP 500 error, which is very generic and can be caused by numerous underlying issues.

    -Your first step should be locating error log for your hosting account or asking support to help with that. Also, find out if there is problem with the server.

    – check with your host if the domain name is configured properly to point to public_html folder

    -It may also indicate a problem with the configuration on the server. Usually your hosting company tech support can help.

    – It may indicate .htaccess issue. Regenerate .htaccess, and be sure the encoding in your text editor is Unicode No BOM

    – it could be problem with the plugins. try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – it could be a problem with the theme. Momentarily, try switching to the default twentyeleven theme via FTP by renaming your current theme to rule out any theme specific issue.

    – if these steps don’t help, download WordPress again and replace your copies of everything EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies. This should replace your core files without changing your content and settings in wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory.

    Actually, I manually installed version 3.3.2 to my account and everything is still not appearing, even though I have 3.3.2 downloaded. I guess I probably typed in the wrong root in my FTP program.

    have you contacted godady about the issue?

    I did and I guess it seems like they want me to install WordPress through their site as well which may cost a lot.

    No it don’t cost anything if you are having at least one hosting plan. Follow these steps:
    1. Log in to your Account Manager.
    2. Click Web Hosting.
    3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
    4. From the Content menu, select Go Daddy Hosting Connection®.
    5. Click WordPress.
    6. Click Install Now

    Are you sure you uploaded wordpress files and folders in html folder

    I downloaded wordpress but it never asked me to install it.
    Can I use worpress on Windows XP?

    Yes you can you will have to install a server Wamp or Xampp for windows and then install wordpress.

    Normally installing a server on your computer and using wordpress is for test purpose for advanced users and learning wordpress for beginners. You can see videos here on how to

    Ok, so I registered my domain name with DreamHost and DreamHost said they installed WordPress. But when I go to my website, there is nothing there. What do I do now. I know you said I may need to install a server Wamp. Where do I do that. I am really clueless. I’ve been working on this since 10am and feel like I have gotten nowhere.

    I registered my domain name with DreamHost

    It could be a DNS issue.

    First, it can take anything from 24 – 72 hours for DNS changes to fully propagate. Second, different networks will update at different times during this period. That is, bear in mind that just because one provider has updated their records, it doesn’t mean that another will.

    What is your full address to wp folder. Try this first.
    I notice that default worpress is showing database error.
    While url and admin are showing 404
    So perhaps you should revisit your config file.

    Your site is working- at least at my end
