Am stack at this step, need ideas and suggestion on what to do
6. Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in a web browser.
If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php
What should I type on "example.com" above
Thanks Mark and Sunforged, I have done that but this is the error am getting.
The requested URL /wp-admin/install.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
I have I missed something on the process, again how do I get to upload the themes, is it from cPanel or wordpress blog.
There is no auto installer and fantastico icon on the cpanel. My hosting company has less features installed on the cpanel rather than the basic to get started
cancel, your hosting company sucks.
They should provide this support via chat in real time or have a video library of easy and common installs and cpanel use.
Hell, I have a hosting company, I would of had you up and running already if I knew what you were working with. You should have posted some screenshots.
Im off for the night its 4am here, email me and maybe I can work something out for you by morning.. Ill beat your current price and cost and support level.
or perhaps Mark will swing back by and sort you out gratis. Dont worry - this is the most difficult part of the process (and its not very) the rest is cake.
do be careful about security though, WP has some very easy steps that should be done to make your site secure, many first time installers and even scripts skip these steps or fail to point out the importance of this necessary and simple step.
I will need to transfer my account to other hosting one drawback is that I don't have credit card that's why I settled for this particular hosting company that accept payment through local payment system. Will need a hosting company that can accept visa debit card.
Hostgator are the best of the cheap ones and you can pay with anything - including paypal.
Seriously - you need to switch hosting companies. There is no need to go through this. There are some good help forums at wordpress.org as well.
I haven't manually installed wp for years, so I probably can't help with your current issue but it is not that hard.
I do my own wp install even with auto-installers available. That's just my preference though!
Oderog, listen to them and switch hosting companies. Mine has simple scripts. I hit the button and it installs. Which is what this non-techie needs.
I'm sure Thisisoli, Mark and sunforged know much more about good hosting than I do, so I would listen to one of them.
Thanks Nelle, am switches the problem getting coomunication from my hosting company is a nightmare and this would cause delay when transferring my account
Maybe you want to post a screenshot on your cpanel under the software category ? I believe there's something else then fantastico, I have a hosting account that allow me to install application such as wordpress through xInstaller so maybe you have something like that too.
As for how to upload themes, you can refer to http://www.faciful.com/?p=91
Try to cross check if your wordpress files are in the root folder.
Well if you are having difficulty for installing a Wordpress, then you should read some basic steps while begin the whole process. The new version of Word Press three made it possible. Conduct a search on the internet and try to find out the best tutorial site, if you are not getting proper referral look for simplewebsitetutorials.com, the great guide for Word Press help.

Who do you use to host your Wordpress site(s)?I am looking at starting up 2 niche sites. So I guess I want a deal that is value for money, reliable, and can cope with more than one domain. Any suggestions by hubbers who use Wordpress are appreciated.
