    I installed wordpress. But my acount showing like below please solve anyone??

    "This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?"

    Did you create a database on your host? Did you put in the correct information?

    After creating your Database, and gathering the necessary information, you need to edit/create wp-config.php (in root of site) to point to the database you created..."localhost" is what was used to run it on your local machine. The Codex explains this is great detail.
