First I really want to thank the person/people who help me. I truly appreciate it!
I had a self hosted blog that was inactive, I rarely ever posted anything and I wanted to start over. I deleted all files associated with the blog, but I have not done a thing with mysql because I'm skeert. (This is probably my problem, but as mentioned, I'm chikkin and need guidance).
So. I have all wordpress files deleted, then I downloaded the most current version, 2.9.2, then uploaded onto my server. Made it through the upload and created my wp-config.php file. Got that cute message that says something like "way to go sparky!"...
But it still won't work. I am trying to open the index.php file and I get a message that says "oops, this link appears to be broken".
What am I doing wrong?
