Support » Installing WordPress » wp-admin folder

  • My apologies if this is redundant, but I’ve looked through the last four posts pages and did a search.
    I’ve installed SQL dependant PHP scripts before without a problem. The config changes in those scripts were virtually identical to WordPress’ I’ve double-checked everything on that end and the database, username, password, permissions, ect. are all correct and I know from past installs (of other scripts) that my host’s serve is configured properly.
    So, following the 5 minute instructions I upload everything in
    Then I try to access
    Well, there’s no wp-admin folder. I would create it, but I don’t know what all would be in there. Is there a discription of the fine structure I’m suppose to follow?
    Oh I’m so lost.
    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/apt131/public_html/wordpress/index.php on line 3
    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/apt131/public_html/wordpress/index.php on line 3
    There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    HELP! Please please please help.

  • are u sure u uploaded the entire package?
    u can check that whether wp-admin exists using the http://FTP...

    the wp-admin folder should contain the same stuff as the wp-admin folder in the WP distribution you downloaded, once it’s unzipped – a whole load of php files. also, did you create a wp-config.php? if not, take wp-config-sample.php, fill in the database info, save it as wp-config.php and upload into wp-admin folder on your server. HTH.

    I’ve made my changes in the config file and uploaded it as wp-config.php
    I downloaded the zip (well, .tar actually) file. Unzipped it all into one folder. There was no file structure. I’m guessing there was suppose to be. When I opened the zip file it was just one big list.
    So do I need to just put create a wp-admin folder and put ALL of the PHP files in the in there?

    what software are u using to extract the files?
    there WOULD be some option to extract the files mantaining the folder structure. winzip has a checkbox most software does that by default.

    *Kicks WinZip*
    If you use the Wizard, it works. Problem is, I never use the wizard. That makes no senses to me. ARG!
    Alright, much thanks to everyone.

    i have never used the wizard myself. thats why there is a CHECKBOX for this particular reason that it gives the user choices. wizard does the extraction the safe way… cant really blame winzip for that. i have had reasons to extract files in the past where i did not need the folder structure.
