    Upload WordPress 3.2.1 to the server...

    Grab wp-config-sample.php from server
    copy to wp-config.php

    add define('DB_TYPE', 'sqlite'); //mysql or sqlite` immediately after line define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Run the wordpress install by visiting http://www.yourname.com/wordpressdirectory/

    define db name, user, password, leave DB_HOST as localhost

    Let WP generate a pw for you, because it you select one it won't be written to the new PDO database. If you let WP generate one, you somehow skip the bug that will not let the password be saved.

    All the SQL strings, will be shown using the PDO engine. It will look like puke to anybody that isn' t a web developer, but the beauty is at the bottom when you scroll down to where it says: Success! and gives you your username / pw.

    Use these credentials to login. Change your password under the 'Users' tab to something you can remember.

    Thanks to AOL developers working on SQLlite, the WordPress team, and the 12,604 downloaders that have contributed to bug-fixes, and feedback.

    Big thanks to Justin Adie for the integration. http://rathercurious.net
