    while i have a very good understanding of HTML, i am a newbie to the PHP and MySQL world. My FTP client is SmartFTP, and could you guys tell me how I could create a MySQL database for my word press? i don't get any of this at all :(

    better yet, instructions for installing word press in smartFTP would be better :)

    In order to create a MySQL database, you will need access to a MySQL server either through phpmyadmin or via your host's Control Panel. Your host should have a Knowledge Base article or FAQ on how to create databases. After your MySQL database is set, follow these instructions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Or if you have SSH access to your account, that would work too.
