    I just uploaded WP to my host account (Yahoo). I placed it in a subdirectory called sports-talk. The subdirectory is also a subdomain. When I access: http://sports-talk.thebluedogsportstore.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php it goes to step 2, when it asks for title and then email. I give it the info, then it goes to page not found error.

    Also, do I need to load phpmysql in the same subdirectory or can I have another subdirectory called wordpress?

    Thanks,

    Chris P

    Do you have access to MySQL through your webhost? Have you created your WordPress database for it to use? Did you provide the login information in the wp-config.php file?

    I use Yahoo hosting as well. You can install phpMyAdmin into a separate directory.

    After it’s installed, login to it. Create a database called “wordpress� then go to privileges and create username “wordpress� for host “localhost� and give it full access to the “wordpress� database. Repeat the process for username “wordpress� for host “mysql� and give it full access to the “wordpress� database as well.

    In your wp-config.php file, put in the appropriate database name, username, and password. Where it asks for DB_HOST, put in “mysql�. Do not use “localhost� or anything else. Upload the file and try going to http://sports-talk.thebluedogsportstore.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php again.

    Thanks for the replies. I logged unto the phpMyAdmin and it says I have no privledges and thus wont allow me to creat a database. The only user with priviledges is "yroot". If you can help, great. How do I create priviledges for the mysql I installed?

    Thanks.

    Wonderful! And your RSS feeds are already up, but there is a slight issue that you'll eventually run into and that is the RSS feed link at the bottom of your page is prefixed with "feed:" which will not work with virutally any browser yet.

    So, for now, while you are using the "default" theme, go into the /wp-content/themes/default directory and edit the file "footer.php". You will see a links to Entries(RSS) and Comments(RSS), the "a href" has the word "feed:" in there before the PHP code. Just remove the word entirely and that'll save you a post later on. :)

    I'm having the exact same problem here as ChrisP, from the looks (Yahoo, privileges, et al.). I am an absolute greener at php and phpMyadmin, and have barely figured out anything so far.

    I did get the wordpress database created; my privileges will allow me to do that. But I can find no way of upping my privileges to add another user to the silly thing. Also, on the privileges page, it gives this message:

    strong Warning: Your privilege table structure seem to be older than this MySQL version!
    Please run the script mysql_fix_privilege_tables that should be included in your MySQL server distribution to solve this problem!/strong

    Does this give any clues to what to do? I've searched my directories, and don't have the script to run, so I can't repair anything. Do I need to slam my head against the Great Wall of Yahoo for a week or two until I get an answer from them?

    In the words of the Jetsons: HEPL!
