    Is wp-config.php set up right?

    i assume so. the only things i needed to change were the mysql settings, right? table name, and username and password?

    i have the same problem
    i guess the problem is the path of the wp-admin
    we need to hack so wp will read the correct path of our server

    Anonymous,
    Make sure that there is not a trailing slash at the end of the URL to your site. Also, make sure that your user is a member of the database.
    When I did my first install, I didn't realise that when I created the user in MySQL that I also had to tell MySQL which database to allow the user to, well, USE!
    Hope this helps. Let us know if it doesn't. The software is more than worth a few bumps in the road! :)
    Craig.
