    Hello, I've just installed WP manually (wow, that was fun) using Godaddy hosting. I modified the wp-config.php file as per instructions in WP help forum. Now, when I go to the site, I'm lost....

    please check this out!!

    THanks for any advice. Am standing by, waiting for help! THANKS!

    on godaddy the connection isn't localhost
    go to the DB Manager and check the connection
    it will be similar to
    p50mysql.secureserver.net
    or
    mysql54.secureserver.net

    Samboll, hopefully you are still on line. I sure was hoping you'd respond. Can you standby for just a minute? I'm not sure what is going on. I've been at this for four hours. I will try what you said and check back in a min. Thanks much!

    I'm modifying the wp-config file now (again). Just put in the db name, un and pw, and the correct host name. Do I need to change the "unique phrase here" lines - and if so, generate a key? I think I read that somewhere on WP help.

    leave the keys alone until you are installed
    you can generate and add the keys afterward and it's one less chance of messing up
