  • Making the story shorter: I’m stuck at ‘wp-admin/install.php?step=2’ page in the WP Install process in a 64bit W7 Ultimate environment using WAMP 2.2.

    I had uninstalled WAMP 2.2 twice, removed any keyword winamp, MySql, MyPhpAdmin from registry, deleted the original folder, rebooted the box and downloaded WP 3.3.2 twice as well but so far no good.

    The tables are created in the database, but no data, no records are stored. The tables are empty, none of the information provided during the WP install process is kept.

    I tried different browsers (Chrome, IE8, Firefox) with the same behavior.

    Ctrl-U (view source) in the browser shows only the following:

    ‘<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns=”http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml” dir=”ltr” lang=”en-US” xml:lang=”en-US”>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ />
    <title>WordPress › Installation</title>
    <link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’install-css’ href=’http://localhost/wp01/wp-admin/css/install.css?ver=20111117′ type=’text/css’ media=’all’ />
    </head>
    <body>
    <h1 id=”logo”><img alt=”WordPress” src=”images/wordpress-logo.png” /></h1>’

    Hitting F5 (Page refresh) I get: ‘Already Installed You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first. Log In’

    WampServer icon in the tray is fully green, all services up and running.

    Application eventviewer shows EV Id 100: MySQL Plugin ‘FEDERATED’ is disabled, don’t think this is the issue, though…

    I pretty much exausted searching the forums and other sources googled as well but unlucky, and it’s been three frustrating full days trying to get WP up and running asap but hard (waisting) time is my only outcome.

    Thanks a lot for your invaluable time and effort in trying to help me out.

    Kind Regards, Ost

    Hurray! I followed the same install procedure, this time not via remote RDP as I have been doing, but directly in the laptop’s console and was able to successfully go through the WordPress install process.

    So keep this in mind: you can’t install WordPress via remote RDP, at least from a Mac environment, like I have. Otherwise it was a breeze to install WordPress, a smooth and straight forward process.

    Thanks to all who have read this post and were trying to figure this out with me.

    Lesson learned.

    Cheers, OSt

    As an additional information for those unfamiliar with Remote RDP/RDC: it is a Microsoft application to use for a remote access to a windows based computer.

    Its command line is mstsc.exe, its GUI comes up as Remote Desktop Connection and it uses the Remote Desktop Protocol, hence RDP as well. There’s a Mac version which I use it on a regular basis to access my Windows based computers.

    Sometimes, although very rare, some apps won’t work in a RDP/RDC session, as in this WordPress install process, where connection to a database in the back end is involved and so forth.

    Thanks, cheers, Ost

    nice lesson and story…thanks for sharing everything…
