Well I tried the 5 minute installation... and now after several days of effort I still have no weblog.
I even tried to work thru the detailed installation and no luck.
As you might guess, I am a real beginner at this. I can do web pages and HTML and the like... but MySQL and PHP have me stumped.
I think at least one of my basic problems is that I don't have a database. I am using WAMP so MySql and PHP are on my own PC. I have downloaded WordPress and it is in a folder in the WAMP directory. I believe I have done all the parts and pieces required in WordPress... but not created whatever is needed in MySql... i.e. a database.
Any pointers as to where to look for help in the area of creating the database.
By the way, in case it makes any difference I am using DreamweaverMX for my website work.
Thanks in advance for any support
