Trouble logging in after installation. (9 posts)

    This has been mentioned before on the boards, but I've tried all possibilities through the feedback given on each topic and still can't get my login screen to come up. All files are in place under a folder labeled "wordpress" which was under the "public_html" folder within the file manager. I've tried various urls, but come up with no proper login screen:
    http://www.akaiten.com/wordpress/wp-login.php
    After that, I get this message:
    We're having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
    * Are you sure it exists?
    * Your database name is currently specified as wordpress. Is this correct?
    * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?
    I've made the changes to the database name to "akaiten_wordpress" and reinstalled, but still get the same message when trying to access the page. I am in need of assistance. Thanks in advance. Your help is most appreciated.

    Do you have a database actually created called akaiten_wordpress? What do you mean you "made changes to the database name"? If there is no database called that, then WordPress cannot find it or create it if you are trying to reinstall.

    I made changes to the database name in the file wp-config.php file, which was originally named "wordpress."

    I don't think I have a database actually named "akaiten_wordpress" so then I adjusted the database name in the wp-config.php file back to the original "wordpress" and then created a database under the name "wordpress." With all that done, I have no luck accessing the login page.

    I made some minor adjustments to the config file and finally got wordpress to install correctly and retreived my username / password. The login page loaded corrently and I entered my login information. After doing so, I received this message:

    Anyone have any solutions for this?

    Search here for "whitespace issue", or "headers already sent"
    It's easily sorted :)

    Alright, I've read through most of the threads and went over your 4 step procedure before logging in and I still get the same error message. It's most likely that I need to backspace or erase the "whitespaces," but I have no idea which spaces to get rid of. I've scrolled down to lines 123, 124, 126, 127, 128, 129, and 149 to see if there is anything that looks odd in the coding, but I could only tell that some lines had been doubled spaced. So I then went ahead to backspace those breaks to make them single spaced lines and that still didn't do the trick. I've noticed others solved the problem fairly easily when noticing the whitespace issue. Could someone share their methods of dealing with this?

    It's whitespace either before <?php on the first line or a carriage return or space after the very last ?> of the PHP file.

    It was the carriage return spaces after the very last ?> of the PHP file. I just back spaced all of the unnecessary space and it finally allowed me to login. Thanks lane and podz!
