    But it's there! I've uploaded it! And Ive edited it with the right MySQLdb info. Why won't the install file recognize that it's there! http://everskies.org/wp/wp-admin/install.php
    *scream*
    Help is much appreciated. :)

    Is the file named wp-config.php? Is it the proper format, in terms of case? For example, if you made it Wp-config.php and you are on a *nix server, the case-sensitivity rules apply. "Wp-config.php" and "wp-config.php" are, in fact, different files.
    Did you edit and save, then rename the wp-config-sample.php file? If you edited that file, but left it as "wp-config-sample.php" the install will not work. Did you rename using underscores instead of a dash?
    Just trying to come up will all possible situations that I've seen.
    HTH.

    ^Thanks for the help but I've tried all those things.
    I think it's something to do with the directories I've uploaded them to. Is every single WordPress file meant to go into the wp-admin file?

    No.
    When you unzip the download, there is a folder called 'wordpress'
    Open that, and upload everything, as it is and missing nothing out, to the directory on your server where you want the blog to live.

    Nat,
    We all make mistakes. I made plenty when I first started using WP a loooooooooooooong time ago. Come to think of it, I still screw lots of things up, but, it's also meant that I've had an equal number of opportunities to learn something as well.
    Don't forget to have fun.
    Craig.
