I have installed Wordpress many times and never encountered an issue.
However I just installed it on a folder (public_html) and after setting up the config.php file it doesn't work. Alledgedly all my information is correct since it doesn't return database error on /wp-admin but redirects to /wp-admin/install.php. However the install.php doesn't load at all.
In chrome I get:
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.chirie-sanchez.com/wp-admin/install.php. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly. HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.
The problem seems to be around here, since I can write anything before but not after:
/** Load WordPress Bootstrap */ require_once( dirname( dirname( __FILE__ ) ) . '/wp-load.php' ); /** Load WordPress Administration Upgrade API */ require_once( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/includes/upgrade.php' ); /** Load wpdb */ require_once(dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/wp-includes/wp-db.php');
I tried changing those with relative URLs and still didn't work. I don't know what to do? What could be the issue?
