  • Are you adding wordpress. to your Table Prefix on install. Maybe leave it at wp_ will work for you.

    Is this a completely fresh install into a new database?

    I would guess wordpress is the database name you provided during the install. Have you created the database in your server?

    Check the Installing WordPress codex page for installation details. There is also have a section with Common Installation Problems.

    yes all new cant get the inatall.php to run

    and added define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);
    and it gave me the first post as return
    hence its repair didn’t repair

    Destroy the database and create a new one. This time, do not give it a name like wordpress. Call it something like mysite.

    ill let you know how that goes
    btw how do I destroy the database

    Hi Jerry,

    How do you access your DB server? Do you have phpMyAdmin?

    If you have a direct connection to you DB, you can achieve it with the following command:

    DROP DATABASE wordpress

    There is no undo, so be careful with it.

    If your database was provided by your hosting provider, its better to contact them and ask for detailed directions.


    I’ve added WordPress and folder wp exists with TNG installation. Also uploaded TNG plugin to WordPress plugin folder

    WHAT NEXT ? please anyone

    Instructions I cannot follow to fully integrate, as they are not for dummies

    TOTALLY LOST as to what to do next
