Support » Installing WordPress » wp-config.php problem!

  • Hi!

    Newbie to WordPress and having a problem with installing it. Including with my domain at is one database on request. So I asked them to create and activate it and got the db-name/username/password/domain information.

    Changed that in the wp-config-sample.php file (including changing localhost to the IP-address provided me) and renamed it to wp-config.php and uploaded the whole folder to my domain.

    When trying to install it by running wp-admin/install.php I get the following error:

    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.

    When clicking on “create a file…” I get another error:

    Sorry, I need a wp-config-sample.php file to work from. Please re-upload this file from your WordPress installation.

    The problem is that both of the files are there..

    Is there anybody who can help me?!
