    Hi, I have changed my wordpress template in photoshop. When I try to upload it by writing /wp-admin/install.php in my browser. It keeps on telling me that there is no wp-config.php - I have checked several times and I have followed the instructions. What can I do to upload the changes.

    best regards

    You cant change a template in photoshop .. :) You will need to change the php and css files, unless its just some changes to a image file..

    If that is, youll need to FTP to the server and manually upload the new files to your wp-content/themes/themefolder .. Where is your wordpress install hosted?

    Thanks.
    The changes is just a few changes in the image files. But how do I upload to my wp-content/themes/themefolder? My wordpress is hosted at wordpress.com?

    On wordpress.com you do not (yet) have the ability to edit the exisiting themes.

    Where should it then be hosted? I did not even know that a wordpress could be hosted elsewhere:-)

    EDITED* Sorry...you posted before I did, you'll have to find a host, either free or paid, and then upload it or use the Fantastico in the main Cpanel then to install it and stuff..

    And I was just over there at their support forums the other day, and like maybe 50% of the topics were locked/closed because of people asking about that, or wondering about that.. It's a sad, sad, shame too... =(

    A good place to start with understanding WordPress and how it works is the codex, check the getting started guide.
