[resolved] Database files in wrong location? (2 posts)

    I'm looking for guidance in how the WordPress files relate to the database I created on the (qwknet) host server. I followed the WP installation instructions, edited the wp-config file correctly, as far as I can tell, and uploaded the files as a subdirectory into the existing site root file. In the phpMyAdmin control panel the database I created shows 0 files. Does WordPress need to be fully installed before it starts creating database files? Following directions for the install.php file sends me to an Error 404, so the installation failed.

    Database tables will be created when you run the WordPress installation.
