    I am trying to run wordpress 2.0 at 275mb.com, it meets the necessary requirements, i uploaded everything, after that went to the install page, it asked me for a title and email id, after that it proceeded to the second step, but stopped right there after displaying the message, that we are creating tables. it didn't reach the step where it shows password. i logged at my server->database saw that the tables were already created, rather http://subiet.275mb.com/wordpress/ even my blog is running, only thing is that i don't have a password to create and edit entries. i can directly access mysql if needed. please help

    If you can access the database, perhaps you can use this tutorial from podz to reset the password.

    That still doesn't explain the email not being sent, but I'm not completely understanding the set up you have, so the mail server of your host could be to blame.

    thanks, that worked like a breeze, btw, in the mean time i also found another solution, i have another wordpress blog on another server (test blog) which works fine, so i just copied the md5 formatted string(from the working blog) and pasted it into the pass field of my non-functioning blog, and after that used the password of test blog for my non-functioning blog and it worked. but thanks again, your solution was much better.
