    Intalling locally (WAMP).

    1. Created MySQL database table via PhpAdmin. Everything good. Table show up.
    2. Updated wp-config.php per instructions.
    3. Install fails. WP finds username/pswd, but not db table.

    I appreciate the support.

    Not used WAMP, just XAMPP (a fork of WAMP, I believe). Only thing I had to create was the database itself, and the database user/password, attaching that user to the database. WordPress install creates the tables generally.

  3. Uninstall WAMP, and follow this installation guide: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/

    Thanks guys.

    Problem wasn't WAMP. I had put the WP files in the wrong subdirectory.

    Installed and working just fine now!
