[resolved] How many fields in MySQL database? (3 posts)

    I'm trying to install WordPress at work. I've set it up on my computer at home with no problems whatsoever, but apparently my host is much better than work's. They say that they can support WordPress (php 4.1, MySQL, and I think Apache mod_rewrite), but we have to create a database. When our web designer goes to the admin page it asks her how many fields need to be in the database. I haven't run across this ANYwhere else, and she is getting very frustrated. When I installed at home the database was already created.
    I would really like this to work, could someone please advise? thanks.

    The answer is none. You only need to create the database (and if it already exists, you can even skip that part). Running through the WordPress installation will do the work of creating the appropriate tables/fields.
