    hello! im seriously new to this thing, but am eager to know more! well nuff for the starters...

    the question is what should i do if cannot create a new database at http://synthpop.ru/phpMyAdmin/, i mean when i log in there is no possibily to create a new one, also it is written "no priviledges"

    the sex is that currently my site is alreadt running a database, and it's a phpnuke driven site, so as i get it phpnuke wholelly occupies the existing one, thus i cannot create another one yet and am afraid to ruin the running one by implementing wordpress unadvisedly.

    is it possible to build WP over or i must have another database handy?

    You can use the same database if you like. That's why WP has the table prefix option. As long as none of the Nuke table beging with WP (and I don't see why they would) you are OK.

    thanx TechGnome!
    yep, yer right there, i checked and didnt find any clue it begins with wp now.
    so i think it's better to backup it first since it's not fool-proof :)
