I have seen this topic discussed several places on the internet, both in the Wordpress official forums and on individuals' blogs. Despite having worked through some of the suggestions, I am still getting the error, when I try to run wp-admin/install.php in my browser locally logged into the console of the server.
Here is what I have done:
1) Apache is installed.
2) MySQL is installed.
3) PHP is installed both according to yum, and the following works the command line, and if I put
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
into /var/www/html/index.php and point my browser to
I get the phpinfo page.
4) The OS is CentOS 6.4
5) Here is the output of mysql Server version: 5.1.69 Source distribution
6) From command line php -version PHP 5.3.3 (cli) (built: Feb 22 2013 02:51:11) Copyright (c) 1997-2010 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
7) From /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
What else do I need to do to install WordPress?
Here is part of the error page: What is weird is I have not installed db tables from the MySQL server into the MySQL server on this system. It says the config has a bad database entry in it, so I'll go look at that, and update the OP.
