    Wordpress on Ubuntu

    Hi Everyone,

    I've tried installing wordpress on my Ubuntu server by using this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WordPress

    but when I run up localhost/ I get this message displayed in my browser

    Neither /etc/wordpress/config-11.123.123.123.php nor /etc/wordpress/config-123.123.123.php could be found.
    Ensure one of them exists, is readable by the webserver and contains the right password/username.

    Any thoughts? I've had a google for the error but not been able to work it out yet.

    Thank you!

    Can you see either of those two files in /etc/wordpress/ in your file manager?

    no, there are only three files in that directory:

    config-localhost.php htaccess wp-config.php

    Thanks

    Well that would explain the message. We just need to work out why they're not there. More reading needed (for me that is...)

    OK, thanks.
    I just noticed that the numbers in the missing file (which I have changed to 11.123.123.123) is my external ip address. not sure if that matters though.

    Looking at the installation guide again, that would definitely matter, as it looks like you've asked the installation routine to look for files that don't exist.
