Support » Installing WordPress » uploading into subfolders?

  • Okay so I set up a folder /wordpress on my site
    I also created subfolders for wp-admin, wp-content, wp-images, etc.
    I uploaded every file from the zip into the same folder that was specified within the zip.
    I changed my wp-config.php to fit my needs (I’m fairly sure that’s okay)
    Now the question is, should I have put ALL of my files just into /wodpress?
    When I do that and bring up install.php it says its missing certain files from /wp-admin so when I move the appropriate files back to wp-admin, it can’t find my wp-config.php so if I move that back to /wordpress it still can’t find it.
    Should I have put ALL files into one big directory or should they be put in subdirectories?
    Where should index.php, install.php and wp-config.php be located?

    When you unzipped, it should have unzipped into the correct file / folder structure. Try right-clicking the zip and checking some options.
    You need to ‘preserve settings’ – or something close to that.

    The files MUST be in their correct subdir.
    In answer:
    index.php – there are two …..
    install.php – goes in wp-admin/
    wp-config.php – goes in the main dir
