I am trying to install WORDPRESS on a dedicated desktop that I have which I have
installed UBUNTU SERVER 16.04. From another computer’s browser on my home
network when typing the servers address 192.168.1.3 I obtain “it works” with the apache2
ubuntu default page. If I type in 192.168.1.3/info.php I can read the content of
“PHP Version 7.0.8-0ubuntu0.16.04.3 etcetera. I can log in to Mysql & prompt.
I then downloaded & extracted the latest wordpress file I firstly transferred the ‘wordpress’
directory and its files & subdirectories to /var/www/html. Then I saw in another article that
I should not have transferred the ‘wordpress’ directory but only all its contents of files & subdirectories. So I did that and have included shots of the content of my var/www/html/
directory and my wp-config.php file.
I have spent lots of time trying to obtain the setup screen with no luck. Hoping someone
might give me a clue as to why I am going nowhere. It would be much appreciated.
Also could the file index.html be a problem? I’m not sure what needs to be done here!.
As I don’t appear to be able to attach photos so the contents of my wp-config.php file are
Contents of my /var/www/html/ folder
index.html license.txt wp-admin wp-config.php wp-login.php wp-includes wp-login.php
index.php readme.html wp-blog-header.php wp-content wp-links-opml.php wp-mail.php
info.php wp-activate.php wp-comments.php wp-cron.php wp-load.php wp-settings.php
NOTE wp-admin,wp-includes,wp-content are FOLDERS
