Is there someone out there who understands data base and wp-install?
I have tried the WordPress "5 minute instructions" and the "Detail instructions", but they are not very specific, meaning if the automated install is not working, why not? then what? and what to do? I tried to sort it out by using trial and error. I have got it down to this:
Deleted all files from the remote host server.
Deleted files from the FileZip that i had uploaded.
Deleted all wp.3.1 files from downloads.
Empty trash bin.
Ran the Disk clean-up.
Also made sure the Security/firewall was not effecting the wp-install.
The download wp.3.1 again. Extract and send to C: drive.
This is where the "WP-Install Instructions", seem to be contradictory, and not to the point:
I am getting two contrary replies from wp, (IF I LEAVE THE WP-CONFIG-SAMPLE), as is (without any changes) after i run the;
"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 i do make changes to the "wp-config-sample" file, then the message from wp-reads;
“Sorry, I need a wp-config-sample.php file to work from. Please re-upload this file from your WordPress installation”.
If you really understand the in's and the out's of "data base", "installs", "FTP" and "remote servers", then maybe this issue is clear as a bell, or a crack in the window, to you, please inform the lesser enlightened one's, and point the way out of a puzzle, please.
I don't mind reading instructions, but when the instructions are meanderings of information and many possible versions of application, then it turn's into trial and error, one failure followed by another. Like if i was the first person to ever to use the wp.3.1 ? Not very likely.
