[quote]The information that comes up when i type in www.incitingincidents.com/wp-admin/install.php is as follows:
The requested URL /wp-admin/install.php was not found on this server.[/quote]
The WordPress files were not uploaded to the correct directory.
- Log in to the DreamHost Web Panel
- Go to Domains -> Manage Domains and “Edit” incitingincidents.com
- On this page, note the “FTP user / CGI-runs-as user” value
- Further note the value for “Specify your web directory”
The default action of the web server (Apache) is to map a url-path from a URL to a file system path so it can send a file to the web browser. What DH calls the “web directory” is the top-most directory it starts looking for files in. Apache calls it the “document root” but the WordPress instructions call it the “web server root directory”. Yours is empty.
You need to make sure to log in as the user from step #3 and make sure you have uploaded the files to the directory in step #4. When you log in, usually the initial directory is your home directory and you should see at least 3 directories, Maildir, logs, and incitingincidents.com. You want to make sure that wp-admin is a subdirectory of incitingincidents.com - then you can browse to the /wp-admin/install.php in your browser.
