    Installing, renamed wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php, specified database params, uploaded. When I go to …/blog/wp-admin/install.php, it says that “There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file.” When I click on the link there that lets me create wp-config.php through a web interface, it says it’s already there. I’m uploading with DreamWeaver’s FTP, which should be uploading as ASCII (never had a problem before with other PHP files). Any suggestions?

  • Problem solved. When I renamed the parent folder (no longer /wordpress/), there was an include statement that needed to be updated within install.php. Dreamweaver didn’t find this particular change when it automatically looked for links.

    Dreamweaver causes people problems.
    If you use it and experience errors, try some other dedicated program.

    Yes, might be worth a “sticky” if you find others running into this issue (surprised I have haven’t seen any). For anyone who finds this in a search…

    IF YOU USE DREAMWEAVER:
    Do NOT let DW automatically update links if you change the main folder name.

    Heh – my advice is that if it says Adobe or Macromedia – do not use it 🙂

    Notepad clones for life! 😀
