    this is my latest error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /data/members/free/tripod/uk/d/e/v/devided/htdocs/wordpress/wp-config.php on line 5
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    this is my wp-config.php file:

    <?php
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', ' DividedPlaces_uk_db'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'DividedPlaces'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'passwordhere'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');//
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');//

    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');
    require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php');
    ?>

    have you got a quote mark in your password?

    I really can't see where the error is, unless it's that. The error suggests that you're missing a ' mark somewhere, but I can't see any missing.

    dividedplaces,

    if you REALLY dont need a password, you might TRY this ..

    1. remove this line completely from wp-config.php:

    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'passwordhere'); // ...and password

    then, open up wp-includes/wp-db.php and locate THIS line:

    $wpdb = new wpdb(DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME, DB_HOST);

    and change that line to read:

    $wpdb = new wpdb(DB_USER, DB_NAME, DB_HOST);

    you should know though, that I have NOT tested that, it might work, might not, AND that it is VERY insecure (if it works at all).
