    Hi,

    I've uploaded files (extracted by winzip on xp) in binary format to Linux server but running install get database connection problem though I've given I assume correct permissions to mySQL, btw to verify this is there an install faq with steps for doing this ie setting permissions on the mySQL end for the (I'm connecting remotely to the server)remote connection required.

    Also does wordpress support MySQL version 4.1.20

    thanks

    Colm

    Check out: http://codex.wordpress.org/Hosting_WordPress for host requirements.

    Files should be uploaded in text format, not binary (except for the few images).

    For MySQL connection issues you should write a note to your host. Your MySQL user should have (All) permissions.
