Help i'm lost in installation! ;)
I'm not a whizzkid ( if so i would have figured this problem out!) and trying to build my own blog on my site. But pfffffff the 5 min. installation is taking me now for 2 nights already!
Here's my problem:
I did everything step by step, created a database called WordPress
Also created a user & all.
Made an edit in the config.php and uploaded everything in the rootdirectory ( wich is httpdocs here)
When i tried to open: http://www.middellaan.nl/wp-admin/install.php
i got the message:
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the WordPress database.
Are you sure it exists?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem
I also tried http://www.middellaan.nl/httpdocs/wp-admin/install.php
but than i got an error 404.
What is it that i could possible do wrong? please help me, it's driving me crazy!
If you have a possible answer please telle me step by step, since i'm totally new to all of this, and my english isn't that good!
