Support » Installing WordPress » Running Install Script

  • Hey everyone,

    When I try and run the install script (step 5 in the Codex) I get the following error messages:

    Warning: main(/home/madisona/public_html/wp-settings.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/madisona/public_html/wp-config.php on line 20

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘/home/madisona/public_html/wp-settings.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/madisona/public_html/wp-config.php on line 20

    So if anyone can offer advice on how to fix this, I would be much obliged.

    Thank you very much.

  • I think the first warning is telling you that the info for the database is wrong in the config file. Check to make sure you have the database name, user and password all correct.

    Do you have wp-config.php file in WordPress directory? Default WordPress only comes with wp-config-sample.php which has to be saved as wp-config.php after you enter your database info on it.

    I opened up the wp-config-sample.php in my text editor, added my user name and password, which I’m almost positive I did correctly, then saved the file as wp-config.php. If you folks know of any other reason this is happening, I’m all ears.

    you say you added the user name and password, but is that the user name and password for the mysql data base, and did you make sure to have the name of the database correctly named as well.

    Yes and yes.
