    Also, if you've helped someone with a one.com account install WP, I'll take that advice too. All others need not apply. Not trying to be rude.

  2. You could so a search and answer many of your own questions: Search WordPress Forums › one.com

    I've read those. I just need a quick rundown from someone who's had experience with one.com. If it's too complicated an answer, I could break it down into specific questions, but I'm thinking it's something pretty simple I'm not doing.

  4. Post your questions, your error messages, what have you....

    Ok, let's start with creating a database. I just don't know how to do that. According to what I've read here, you have to do that BEFORE you do the "wp-config.php" deal. So I guess that would be the most important thing.

  6. One.com creates the database for you; they sent you the details - database name, password, etc - via email. Use those details when you configure your wp-config.php file: Editing wp-config.php « WordPress Codex.

    I did that already. Nothing.

  8. No one can read your mind. List error messages, what you see and don't see, how far you get in the install process....

    Well, I've done pretty much all of wordpresses installation instructions, even the ones I didn't have the right prerequisites for. When I click on the /wp-admin/install.php, this weird error message page comes up that has the wordpress logo, a search engine box, and a button to "install" wordpress. Hope I don't give away too much, but it looks like this: file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Derrick/My%20Documents/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php?step=2

    or

    file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Derrick/My%20Documents/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    Whichever one works.

    I don't really know what question to ask except: how do I get the tables to show up in my database? WordPress is not in my database at all.

    or

    file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Derrick/My%20Documents/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    thats a clear sign you are NOT doing things correctly. you dont click on the files as they exist on your pc.

    do YOU have a website?

    is it hosted?

    have you created a database on said web host?

    have you uploaded the wordpress files to your web host?

  12. Are you trying to install WordPress locally on your own PC? You FTP WordPress files to your hosting account at one.com and install there:

    Place the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server:
    If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.

    To whooami,

    Yes to all of them. I used FTP to upload wordpress to the root directory, but it's not showing up in the database.

    To sonddogtech,

    Any chance you can give me example of how a root directory might look? Because I think I've already done all of that too.

    What's the name of the website? That would be very helpful.

    Honestly, I think the only question left to answer may just be how do I install the tables in my database.

    Ok, this

    http://www.gamblingandtrading.com/wp-admin/install.php

    would be where you install which would create the tables in your database... but it doesn't exist which means you don't have the files uploaded to the correct area.

  17. No, you need to upload all the rest of the wordpress files. All you've uploaded is wp-config.php.

    Ha, indeed, didn't even look at the source :p

    Then that's what I don't know how to do, upload the whole directory. Should I just redo it?

    Just upload the rest of the WP files (there will be a folder called wp-admin, wp-content, and wp-incluces and a bunch of php files) to the same place you uploaded the wp-config.php.

    I can't download it to an html file and that's all I see. And I just tried it and it didn't go. Anything else I can give you?

    It's been resolved. Support at one.com did it for me. :)

    I guess that's my advice for anyone who has one.com questions.
