Wordpress Install Error

I set up Wordpress through DH, and then ran the install script and I get:

Warning: main(…/wp-config.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/.ilya/lizard/xdogevents.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php on line 5

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘…/wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/.ilya/lizard/xdogevents.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php on line 5

Any help?

Try setting up WordPress again using a different directory and database, or contact DH support. This seems to be a random problem with their installer.


I just ran into the exact same problem. I think it might be account-related rather than a random problem. I tried multiple times with various databases/install directories/etc and always ran into the same problem. Tried changing folder permissions – still didn’t affect anything.

Waiting on dreamhost support response. If anyone has any other clues in the mean time, please post.
