    I had issues with the the initial set up because the DB_host is required when using 1 and 1, even though most people don't have to use it. Email me and I will try to talk you through it if you haven't given up yet!

    What chmod do I need to run on my files to finish the install?
    I'm using Dreamweaver by the way.

    you need to chmod the weblogs-changes-cache file to 777, otherwise you don't need to chmod anything.

    ...in which case you have to chmod the files you want to edit later using the template editor interface to 766!
    -thanks Sushubh.

    I plan to do a lot of customization. I was running B2 Evolution before and was pretty confortable with editing the templates and CSS.
    I need to know how to chmod files in Dreamweaver and what files to chmod.

    The weblogs-changes-cache file is only used if you choose to show when pages that you link to are updated...doesn't have anything to do with you posting, accessing admin, or the like. If you can't do this right now, it doesn't make any difference at all.

    You chmod in ur ftp client and not in dreamweaver.
    and if you using dreamweaver to upload, well there must be some option... i suggest you use an independent ftp client.
    oh boy, IE sure sucks when it comes to WP forum... :O)

    By the way marcus
    You have to use 1and1 hostname in order to access mysql database.
    Localhost is only if the database is running localy on the same computer your server is which is not the case with 1and1.
    Do to their security policy they are hosting mysql databases on seperate address which is perfora yourdatabasenumber.perfora.net
    so for example db45.perfora.net

    dgoran, I've got the database information entered correctly. I'm not sure what the problem is...
    http://www.s92746404.onlinehome.us/install/install.php
    error 403: Forbidden!
    The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated.

    Have you contacted 1and1 to check that the script is allowed on their server?

    No, I haven't yet.

    1and1.com has no problems with wordpress, or any associated scripts. I have quite a few blogs up there.
    smarces, start afresh if you will, and just go through the steps again, taking care of the database stuff in wp-config properly.

    Okay, honestlty I'm just taking advantage of their free 3 year hosting plan. I will begin to pay for hosting and a domain in a few months.
    Will 1and1 help me to completely wipe my database and any files I have uploaded?

    smarcus, you have ssh access and ftp access to your 1and1.com account. There is also a bunch of good tutorials that they provide to install new stuff, like phpMyAdmin, and such.
    If you need help in installing WordPress on your 1and1.com server, I can help you out. Email me at mail at carthik dot net, and I will set it up for you, according to your needs, if that's what you want. Once its up and running you can see how it is and understand better.
    I am kind of busy right now, but I can find time tomorrow.

    I am 1and1.com, also, and am having a terrible time installing WP. I am getting the following error:s
    Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /homepages/20/d95403816/htdocs/wp-config.php on line 2
    Parse error: parse error in /homepages/20/xxxxxx/htdocs/wp-config.php on line 2
    WordPress
    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /homepages/20/xxxxxx/htdocs/wp-admin/install.php on line 47
    From what I have read on these fora, the Warning and Parse error are not big deals, but I don't know what to do about the Fatal error. I used cut and paste to put the info in the wp-config.php file that I got directly from the MySQL database on the website. I have even tried various combos of the info to no avail. This is very frustrating.

    Where did the \ come from, in line 2 ?
    remove that, and check for basic errors, like formatting, extra characters etc in wp-config.php

    There seems to be something wrong with my server. I can't seem to upload files via FTP.

    i was a 1and1 customer and i ended up dumping their services for poor performance. i would suggest finding a better host with better support.

    smarcus, please email me at mail @ carthik dot net and I'll see you through this :)
    1and1.com is not the greatest, but it suits my purposes fine.

    This is an old thread, but I wanted to address something.
    I too am using 1and1, and I have dug up some information that may helpful for other users.
    The 1and1 database is behind a firewall and is only accessible from your server. While I am not sure if there is some way to hack and access it from an account on the same server, that possibility seems unlikely. So, don't be too worried about your dbase info being posted.
