    Hi, all. I am trying to install Wordpress on my windows hosting. Database is setup using phpMyAdmin, I've uploaded wordpress files in wwwroot folder using FTP and edited wp-config file too. However, running install script (by typing http://www.mydomain.com/wp-admin/install.php) results in "Page not found" error.:sad: What could be the problem?

    Does your Windows hosting have the necessary PHP and MYSQL setup?

    Yes, They've configured PHP 5 on it and database is also set up in MySQL. Is there any hack that I have to follow for installation?

    I've uploaded the "files" to server, not wordpress folder. BTW, all the files are in wwwroot folder.
