Please provide following information:
1) Where you are trying to install Wordpress i.e. on local system or on some server
2) What is the location where you have copied the wordpress folder
3) which path you are using to browse the wordpress installation folder.

Also please refer following links:

Here is my problem. I downloaded and extracted wordpress to a folder e:/webdesign/worpress and php files are run from  e:/program files/easyPHP/www

Now my php runs from another folder where wordpress isnt located. I need to change the setting in php so that it picks up php files from the wordpress dir, and how do I do this?
I dont want to change the dir of where wordpress is.

I have created a wordpress DB already.

it isnt php.ini but httpd.config and there i a setting? How do i do this?

Hi,

I think we are going around in circles here with these small replies on more information.

Forget wordpress for the minute and how do I run php files form another directory other than the default directory of php.

I NEED to know how I run php files from  folder e:/webdesign/myfolder . Currently easyPHP set this folder to run php files from e:/program files/easyPHP/www

I have done this before but forget the settings to change.
I dont know what settings, or path, or  environment variable to change here and how to change it.

Try this..

Open your php.ini

search for include_paths...

under that heading add...

include_path = ".;e:/webdesign/worpress"

Open in new window

This is confusing. Where and how do i add this include? Like this?

This didnt work as I cant run php from this new dir after restart of the server

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Paths and Directories ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;


; Windows: "\path1;\path2"
;include_path = ".;${path}\php\includes"
include_path = ".;e:/webdesign/worpress"

; PHP's default setting for include_path is ".;/path/to/php/pear"
; http://php.net/include-path

Hello,

You will just have to create the MySQL Database. Please check the link http://turrier.fr/tutoriels/form_03/create-a-mysql-database-with-easyphp-and-phpmyadmin.html

Following are the steps I have found on internet
==
1) Right-click the black E in the toolbar tray and choose Administration, then click DB Management (beside PHPMyAdmin). Alternatively, using a browser, go to http://localhost/mysql/ (note the final slash).
2) If asked for a username, use "root" with a blank password. You should see a phpMyAdmin web interface that allows you to create a new databases and user accounts.
3) Create a new database by typing "wordpress" into the field and hitting the "Create" button and don't forget to specify a utf-8 collation for the database being created. That was easy!
4) You can also create a new user to access your database if you want. This can be a bit tricky for a first-time user, so you might just want to use the existing user "root" with no password in your Wordpress config for now, and fix this later.

I create a wordpress db in msql , I copy wordpress folder to where it can pick up php files and i get this when i load index.php from wordpress.


There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.

Need more help? We got it.

You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.

Ok I so I follow the prompts and (set up file) and enter db name , user,password which will be root and no password
