    I'm sorry to be asking for help again so soon but I really suck at this. So I finally got the config.php right enough to get into the installation page but this is the error that comes up:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'sarah_wordpress.wp_options' doesn't exist]
    INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name, option_value, option_description, autoload) VALUES ('template', 'default', '', 'yes')

    WordPress database error: [Table 'sarah_wordpress.wp_options' doesn't exist]
    INSERT INTO wp_options (option_name, option_value, option_description, autoload) VALUES ('stylesheet', 'default', '', 'yes')

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/sarah/public_html/Wordpress/wp-includes/wp-db.php:102) in /home/sarah/public_html/Wordpress/wp-admin/install.php on line 16

    :S I'm really not sure what to do. I'd really appreciate it again if you could help :P

    Can you describe the steps you used to install? Or is this an upgrade?

    Sure, (and no its not an upgrade.)But I haven't installed it all yet. I've only gotten to the first page.
    I saved the zip, created a MySql database. Then I opened config.php and changed it. Then I uploaded everything and went to the install page, and this is what appeared.

    What did you put for your DB_NAME?

    And the database you created for wordpress is named sarah_wordpress? If you use cpanel to create your database, it usually prepend something. Like mine, I named my wp db as kates but when cpanel created it, the name that came out is kg_kates, kg being my username. Just check the actual database name created by you.
