    Please help this newbie. I never got to the screen to the screen where wordpress assigns user name & password. I am able to pull up login put don't know what to enter. If I try to to run set install again it says that it already exists. On the login page if I hit forgot password I get a 404 error. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  2. We can try different things, but the best thing to do is probably start over. Who are you using for a hosting service? Do they offer one step WordPress installs?

    I'm hosted with IXWebHosting and no they do not offer one step wordpress installs. It really did take me a lot longer than 5 minutes. Maybe this next time it will be faster. Thank you for your reply.

    @1948artlady, please try uploading simple sendmail() command containing php file with your same email address, in the same directory as your wp, and run it via url and check if you receive the email successfully in your inbox/junk mail box.

    or else contact songdogtech or me at: http://tech.nabtron.com/contact/

  7. @nabtron: it's considered good manners to stay out of threads where a long time wordpress supporter is walking someone through a process, and 2) not to confuse the situation with instructions that are both incomplete and irrelevant.
