    i have uploaded the wordpress files via ftp, I have started the set up process but every time I press SUBMIT internet explorer says "This Page Can Not Be Displayed"?

    I have ALL of the correct info:
    $mysql_host = "mysql8.000webhost.com";
    $mysql_database = "wordpr1";
    $mysql_user = "wordpr1";
    $mysql_password = "xxxxxxxx" (password removed)

    Have you tried a different browser? I've had issues with Internet Explorer blocking sites because of some obscure security settings. You will have better luck with an open source, standards-based browser:

    I'd recommend:
    Google Chrome
    Mozilla Firefox.

    If you still have issues with one of the above browsers, then you will need to check your file permissions in the directory you have uploaded into.

    attn. Roaming Pro, thanks for the reply!
    ok I used notepad++ to edit wp-config.sample.php (or whatever its called)I used firefox to upload the file, I got a error message, then I used the wp salt page to create and add the keys, then re-uploaded wp-config.php

    its working!!! thanks all ( it turns out my webhost didn't create the MySQL database even though I created one? )

    At my hosting company, we simply user 'localhost' as the DB_HOST

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