Setting up folders (5 posts)

    Hello, I downloaded the WP installation kit and extracted the files using Winzip. So I have a bunch of files that aren't organized into their relevant folders. Is there a reference page that describes or lists or recommends a filing structure? I have loaded all my files on the Web and tried to run install.php. However, it says that the wp-config file has not been created. Of course, it has been created, only it is not in the right folder, which I assume is wp-admin. Now, I know I must create the wp-admin folder, but it is going to be quite time consuming if each time I try to run an installation file I am told that the file does not exist simply because it is not in the folder or I haven't created the relevant folder because I didn't know beforehand I needed to. So I am wondering if a list is available that states which folders need to be created and which WP files belong in which folders as specified in the installation files. Thank you.

    Set Winzip to use the folder structure in the zip file before unzipping.

    You unzipped a download, and inside it was a folder called 'wordpress'
    Everything inside that is correctly organised, and everything needs uploading to the directory of your choice on the server.
    wp-config.php should be in the main directory, where wp-layout.css is.

    When I unzipped the download, there was no folder called 'wordpress' and none of the other folders you specified.
    I am looking into Winzip to see if I can set the folder structure.

    Okay, I got it! Thanks. I found out that when I ran WinZip Classic, all the files were unzipped into one folder. When I ran the Wizard, the files were unzipped along with the folders. Thanks again for the pointers!
