I am brand new to Magento, but have used other content management systems, mostly WordPress.
I am trying to install Magento on a development subdomain of an existing website that is already running Magento Community. I have uploaded the Magento directory, changed the php.ini file, verified that all system requirements are met, and created a MySQL database and username with corresponding passwords. I'm told the next step is to browse to http://dev.thermalpaperandmore.com/magento/install and the install process should begin. Only one problem...there is no install.php file at that location. I must be missing something, but I have no idea what it could be. The only thing that displays when I go to that URL is the following message:
Magento supports PHP 5.6, 7.0.2, and 7.0.6 or later. Please read Magento System Requirements.
Any help or direction that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Looks like your domain is set up to run WordPress only at this stage. Most likely you will need to move your WordPress installation over to a sub directory, like http://dev.thermalpaperandmore.com/wordpress then you should be able to access your Magento 2 install. You'll need to look into your virtual host settings.
I ran the Magento check file and it says I'm good to go.
