    ‘.__(‘You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.’).’
    ‘);} switch($step) { case 0: case 1: // in case people are directly linking to this display_header(); ?>

    error) ) wp_die($wpdb->error->get_error_message()); display_header(); // Fill in the data we gathered $weblog_title = isset($_POST[‘weblog_title’]) ? stripslashes($_POST[‘weblog_title’]) : ”; $admin_email = isset($_POST[‘admin_email’]) ? stripslashes($_POST[‘admin_email’]) : ”; $public = isset($_POST[‘blog_public’]) ? (int) $_POST[‘blog_public’] : 0; // check e-mail address if (empty($admin_email)) { // TODO: poka-yoke die(‘

    ‘.__(“ERROR: you must provide an e-mail address.”).’
    ‘); } else if (!is_email($admin_email)) { // TODO: poka-yoke die(‘

    ‘.__(‘ERROR: that isn’t a valid e-mail address. E-mail addresses look like:‘).’
    ‘); } $wpdb->show_errors(); $result = wp_install($weblog_title, ‘admin’, $admin_email, $public); extract($result, EXTR_SKIP); ?>

  • 1.) Go to your database and delete the formerly installed wordpress data (you may have subconsciously installed it).
    2.) Create a new database for your wordpress. (Sometimes it’s better to also use the database name as your database username so you won’t forget your username).
    3) Check your wp-config-sample.php and edit bold words in these lines:

    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘putyourdbnamehere‘);
    change to
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘the name of the database you created‘);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘usernamehere‘);
    change to
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘the username you associated with the database name‘);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘yourpasswordhere‘);
    change to
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘the password you created with the username‘);

    I am assuming that your webserver and database server are in one system so you wouldn’t have to change the hostname but if you are using GoDaddy as your host then you have to change the hostname to the public address of GoDaddy’s database server.

    Also if your seeing what you pasted here then php is running either. You’ll have to make sure the php is setup on the server.

    Ok i got it running now thx!
