    These instructions work fine as far as they go. I have successfully completed this much of the WordPress install a number of times. However, on first visit to the site, WordPress displays its own installation page, asking for a site name and admin password. When I complete the form and click to continue, a blank step 2 page is displayed. The site exists, but when I try to log in, access is denied. When I check the database, I can see that no admin account has been created. It looks like the installation process does not quite do everything it needs to do.

    Just a note for anybody else trying this… When I first launched WordPress, I got a 403 Forbidden error. If you also see this, you can fix by adding index.php as a default document.

    1. From the panel, choose “Web sites”
    2. Select your site
    3. Add index.php to the list of default documents and save

      Have you submitted a ticket to support[@] Arvixe does one free install of a script for our new customers. One thing to note through that if you are only using wordpress it is strongly recommended that you use a Linux account instead of an ASP account.
