Install instructions lead me nowhere - no login file created (6 posts)

    This is my second attempt at following the directions.
    I unzipped, renamed, chmodded, and went to

    This brought the screen asking for info that I typed in, this seemed fine, next page, more info added, it then says congratulations email sent.

    I got the email, but there is no

    In fact, there are no files in the folder except the "wpmu" that was unzipped there.

    What am I missing?

    Install it in the root folder (ie; the default folder) and not the WPMU folder.

    What do you mean "install it in the root folder"?

    I know this sounds stupid, but really...

    Unzip it there?
    Copy the files from a particular folder to the root folder?

    When I ran through the pages at there were no options to select where it gets installed to. It just asked for a few bits of info, nothing about directories or anything...

    You may have to copy what you unzip over to the root. It auto-installs wherever it is.

    Hi All,

    I had the same issue, I found that if you extract the files from the nightly build into a directory, you then access the index.php file to setup your instance of MU WP.

    I then noticed that the redirect to the landing page went to 'wp-login.php', which of course did not exist there, but in a folder above.

    So now everytime I setup a new instance, I set the home directory (IIS Speak) or root directory (Apache Speak) to the root, then once I have run the setup index.php, change the home\root of the web site to wp-inst :)

    Works like a charm for me... now I have another issue... But that's for another topic ;)
