after installing the CiviCRM plugin, I read:"CiviCRM is almost ready. You must configure CiviCRM for it to work."
If I click the link to configure, or do the following:
"Then go to Settings > CiviCRM Installer: http:///wp-admin/options-general.php?page=civicrm-install You should see the CiviCRM Installer screen."
then I see only the left and top menu, with 'Settings>CiviCRM Installer' highlit, and a reminder to update Wordpress, but nothing else.
I'm installing CiviCRM 4.6.16 in Wordpress 4.5
I looked for but didn't find .../civicrm.settings.php .
Dec 2016 - I have now re-installed MySql, PHP & wordpress and again activated CiviCRM, but face the same situation on trying to install CiviCRM: a grey blank center of the screen, with wordpress options on top and left edge.
This LAMP stack is on Ubuntu server 16.0.1.
