Hmm, well so much for a 5 minute install for WordPress. I am following the directions from www.wombatnation.com. I ran the installer, everything appeared the way it was supposed to, but when I login it just gives me the login page again.
I know this is a symptom of the bug where you can’t have the blog in a sibling directory, but nowhere in the instructions does it say how to specify where the blog goes. I followed the instructions, but it gives my blog as being www.domainname.com/wordpress/ so the default puts the blog and the files in the same directory? And the default is that it doesn’t work?
Or is step 4 of the installer supposed to point to blog directory instead of install directory? Mine pointed to www.domainname.com/wordpress which was the install directory so I left it at that, but I can’t login.
