  2. Change your site_url and home values manually via phpmyadmin.

  8. Yep, AuthImage works good. You can find more methods to combat comment spam here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/spam/

  9. As far as having phpmyadmin goes, you'll have to contact your hosting provider, or check their support database.

    phpMyAdmin is server based or my site only ?
    i check my cpanel dont have phpMyAdmin, so how should i do now ? contact my web hosting provider ? or can i just dl n install on my site ?

  14. You just have to use the "More" quicktag button when writing your post.

  15. phpmyadmin should be installed on your MySQL server. Accessing your MySQL server's URL should take you to phpmyadmin. If not, contact your host or check their support database.

    Yes, phpmyadmin is common for hosts to have, but it's not always a standard feature, though I think it should be.

    If they don't have it, you can always download it yourself, place it in a folder of your choice on your website, and enter your mysql user and pass, along with some other minor details, into the phpmyadmin config file. It comes with some pretty clear instructions.
