[resolved] Error installing WP (2 posts)

    I'm installing WP on my host for the first time and after following the installation instructions about uploading the CONTENTS of the wordpress directory to the root folder (public_html), when I try to access the wp-config.php page I get the following error:

    Warning: main(): Unable to access ../../wordpress/wp-config.php in /
    www/business/5382/wp-admin/install.php on line 8

    Warning: main(../../wordpress/wp-config.php): failed to open stream:
    Permission denied in /www/business/5382/wp-admin/install.php on line 8

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '../../wordpress/wp-
    config.php' (include_path='.:') in /www/business/5382/wp-admin/
    install.php on line 8

    It looks like WP thinks the wp-config.php file is in a directory called wordpress but as I want WP to be accessible via http://www.creative-i.info I just uploaded the contents rather than the directory as well.

    This is what I see when I access the URL:

    Can’t select database

    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the Creative-i 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?
