I'm what I was hoping to be an ex MT user by now. Last night was the last straw when my user files went corrupt and I lost all ability to log in, back up, etc. So, I backed up what I could, deleted the whole thing, and was hoping that the 5 minute installation would be all the time it would take cause it was nearing 1 am and I was tired. However, it's noon the next day, and although I did sleep in between, I got up a number of times thinking "OK, what if I tried this?" to find out that I'm still not a WP user just yet.
Truth be told, I have absolutly no clue about mySQL. Never used it before, and I wouldn't know what to do with it if I wasn't given detailed instructions. But I followed all the steps for setting up wp-config.php, ran the install, and all I get is that it can't find the wp-config.php file, goes through all the steps and says it's installed (but it can't figure out what my url is and doesn't give me a password). I'm at a loss here. Can anyone help?
