    I'm having problems with the install. 1st, I downloaded the files and read the directions. I then went to godaddy and activated the WP application. Godaddy pretty much installed everythign I needed ont he server, inclusing teh wp-config.php file, already prefilled, I didn't have to do that.
    So now I go to the readme file and try to do the install. It say's it's already installed, get it gives errors:

    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: username@example.com').'
    '); } $wpdb->show_errors(); $result = wp_install($weblog_title, 'admin', $admin_email, $public); extract($result, EXTR_SKIP); ?>

    Where was that email address suppose to go in??
    What am I missing?
    Wow this is more complicated than I hoped.

    Assuming you are running on a Linux hosted account at GoDaddy, what happens if you just visit your site--does WordPress show up?

    It sounds like it was installed through Hosting Connection. If this is the case, you will have an email with the installation details to get you started.
