    also, when it says upload everything, what exactly is everything.

  3. 99.999% of the time you don't need to change that. See Editing wp-config.php « WordPress Codex if you need help with wp-config.

    Everything means all the files and folders you downloaded in the wordpress.zip package.

    i got another question sorry, should i download Filezilla client or filezilla server. i have windows by the way.

  7. Just the Filezilla client: FileZilla_3.3.0.1_win32-setup.exe for Windows at FileZilla - Client Download.

    i got to the troubleshooting part because it didnt connect and what was happening to me didnt match 1, 2, 3, or 4. mine said "could not connect to server", and the codex doesnt say what to do if it says that. Also im pretty sure i did everything right

  9. "Could not connect to server" means you've got something wrong in wp-config. Check database name and password again, and again. Check against the info your host gave you.

    in wp-config, for the mySQL hostname i put localhost:3307 correct? im pretty sure it said that in the codex.

    For the stable prefix, i can put what ever i want?

    And do i put anything for localized language next to where it says
    'WPLANG'?

  11. *NOT* localhost:3307 Unless you're using XAMPP; are you?

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    Leave the table prefix alone!

    Leave WPLANG alone! Unless you want something other than english, and then download that installer: WordPress in Your Language « WordPress Codex

    ok i corrected that but its still not right.

    tell me if im correct about this.

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    I keep all these the same^

    define('AUTH_KEY
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY
    define('NONCE_KEY

    $table_prefix =
    i can write watever i want in these^

    Is that correct?

  13. ok i corrected that but its still not right.

    What did your host tell you your database name and user name is? Are you sure those are correct in wp-config?

    Leave all of these alone for now:

    define('AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    define('NONCE_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here');
    /**#@-*/
    
    /**
     * WordPress Database Table prefix.
     *
     * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique
     * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
     */
    $table_prefix  = 'wp_';

    ok i have a feeling i wrote down the username and database wrong

    in cPanel, i made my database username 'jacjak64' but it says jacjak64_data. so in wp-config should i put jacjak64 or jacjak64_data?
