    the bad news is there is no table showing up. the wp_user table only show the list of id, and user_login, user_pass. when i try to browse user_login, mysql returned an empty result

    the wp_user table only show the list of id, and user_login, user_pass

    That's not right. It should show the username, display name, user_url etc.

    Since this is a new install, I would strongly recommend that you empty the database completely and run wp-admin/install.php again. If one table is so completely borked, it's likely that others are damaged too. :-(

    our domain name is registered in another account. the website is hosted by our own VDS. the WP files is uploaded to the sub-folder /blog. the database is built in the VDS. In this case, I should set it to localhost or something else?

    If the database server is in the same VPS, yes, MySQL database host should be localhost.

    I'd actually check with the server's admin about this. Different server configs may affect exactly what hostname you can use,

    we rent the VDS from Godaddy.com.

    In linux, the hosts info is set in the text files:

    /etc/hosts
    /etc/sysconfig/network

    Usually localhost is already defined there and might have other aliases defined there too to set your VPS (Virtual Private Server) IP address.
