    I am trying to learn WordPress. When I goto my site http://www.mysite.com/wordpress it asks me for a user name and password...so I login.
    The screen is set up with 3 sections with http://www.mysite.com at the top, on the left it says "select database" in the middle is a table.
    When I logon to http://www.mysite.com/wordpress/wp-login.php it shows the blog that I set up called "kate" and I uploaded a theme and that is selected...but when I click on "view site" it looks nothing like the theme...it takes me to http://www.mysite.com/wordpress. What am I not understanding? I have yahoo as a host with database privlidges, I used FTP to upload the wp files....Thanks for helping me!

    At your /wordpress location, do you see the words phpMyAdmin? Your description seems to indicate that you've perhaps installed multiple applications in the same directory.

    phpMyAdmin (a MySQL administration tool) should usually be installed in it's own directory. The /wordpress directory should only contain files from the WordPress zip file.
