    I currently have a website hosted by godaddy.com, edited with dreamweaver. After much research, I thought that the best way to integrate a blog, would be to download wordpress. I set up a mysql and a php (you can probably tell that I barely know what I am talking about), but come to a halt when I attempt to install wordpress. It says it cannot find the wp-config.php or that something may be wrong with it. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could possibly be overlooking?

    Since you are installing WordPress manually, you need to create and configure the wp-config.php file.

    Basically what you do is duplicate the wp-config-sample.php that was uploaded with the rest of WordPress, rename it to wp-config.php and edit it with the needed info. (where your MySQL database is located. it's password, etc.)

    A detailed guide can be found here.
    Just scroll down to step 3.

    Hope this helps. :D
