Version 2.2.3 has installed for me many times on my server successfully. I am unable to install 2.3 or 2.3.1. After submitting the wp-config.php create form, the landing page should be http://www.myserver.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php?step=1. but I get a totally dead webpage. all php pages in /wordpress/ are dead. the readme.html loaded fine. other php pages on the server run fine. reverting to 2.2.3, installation was okay.

Hi jlheidecker, What do you mean by totally dead webpage? Do the error longs show anything? Until the cause of your issue is identified it might be best to pursue this issue on the Support Forums.

If its a completely blank webpage, Then chances are your PHP Errors are disabled, and you've not deactivated the plugins before upgrading, Plugins can break Wordpress pretty badly if you leave them enabled while upgrading, Esp. on the upgrade to 2.3 as a number of changes were made(Inbuilt tagging seems to cause teh most problem with older tagging plugins)

Disable your plugins(By deleteing the files from the plugins folder, or moving the folder), Complete the WP upgrade, then enable the plugins one-by-one.

  • Milestone 2.5 deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version 2.3 deleted

Closing as the reporter has not come back, and it appears to have been a Server Setup error(PHP).
