  • Resolved neeznoodle



    I’ve just attempted several times to install WP, but have yet to succeed. I have the required MySQL and PHP versions with my hosting site, I changed the proper info (and ONLY the proper info) on wp-config.php, and uploaded all files (twice).

    Each time I go to the (using my domain instead of I get the following messages:

    Warning: main(../../wordpress/wp-admin/./upgrade-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/nonfatc/public_html/blog/wp-admin/install.php on line 7

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘../../wordpress/wp-admin/./upgrade-functions.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/nonfatc/public_html/blog/wp-admin/install.php on line 7

    Any ideas what I’ve done wrong?

  • You installed in public_html/blog/ or public_html/wordpress/ ?

    I installed in public_html/blog/ (I renamed the wordpress folder to blog).

    Thinking out loud here: From the error it appears that /home/nonfatc/public_html/blog/wp-admin/install.php on line 7 is ‘calling’ ../../wordpress/wp-admin/./upgrade-functions.php, but cannot find it (which makes sense, as you re-named the folder so it doesn’t exist!).

    Do you have a .htaccess file somewhere (re-directing)?

    You are brilliant! That was the problem. I simply changed ‘blog’ back to ‘wordpress’ and I’m now at the installation screen. Thank you very much for your input!!

    How do I mark this as resolved?


    Scroll to top and use the pull-down thingie* (*thingie; Highly technical term).

    That was too simple… Sometimes the easiest solutions are the hardest for me to find. Thanks again.
