    I'm having such trouble fixing this on my own. The more help articles i read i think the more confused i get, I apologise for my ignorance on the whole thing!

    So I've uploaded my wordpress files onto the FTP server - not sure where they should have gone, currently they are sitting along side /htdocs and /logfiles. Should this be in htdocs?
    I've edited my wp-config.php with all the info required (though currently not sure whether the user and passwords are the correct ones until i get some kind of progress with the rest of it ><)
    I have a phpmyadmin all set up and ready to receive tables. I'm just not sure how to get it working from here, any help most welcome :)

    You need upload wordpress files and folders in htdocs as that is your root.
    If you want your domainname.com then you should upload contents of wordpress folder in your htdocs folder you should have in your htdocs folder

    wp-admin
    wp-includes
    wp-contents
    and all wp- files.

    Delete wp-config.php file and leave wp-config-sample.php as is

    now when you go to url you should have the install program open and you can follow instructions.

    I've reorganised my /htdocs folder and now have all the original wordpress files that were in my wordpress folder appearing in this location. I'm still not getting anything when i go to my url: http://www.emmaatkins.co.uk/wp-admin/install.php

    What should i do now, do i not need to edit that wp-config.php file?
