I have uploaded the most recent version of WordPress to the server and created a MySQL database. However, When I visit my site, I select the WordPress folder and it gives two error messages:
Warning: require_once(/home/username/public_html/wordpress//wp-includes/class-wp-error.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/a5558093/public_html/wordpress/wp-load.php on line 48
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/username/public_html/wordpress//wp-includes/class-wp-error.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/username/public_html/wordpress/wp-load.php on line 48
After reading this, I realized that the problem was that I needed to take the contents out of the "wordpress" folder, paste them in parallel to the "wordpress" folder, and delete the "wordpress" folder. Everything works fine now. Thankyou all.
I'll guess it has something to do with that extra / in the path wordpress//wp-includes, though I'm not sure why that's happening. Possibly an issue with how it's defining the ABSPATH setting in wp-load.php
