  • if this not a troll.
    u need to give some more details about what u want…

    If you’re talking about the database tables, they are created for you during the install.

    Ok Sorry,
    I extracted the files to my WWW folder and went into the wp-config.php file and made these changes…
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’); // did nothing to this
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’); // changed this to your
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘ROOTPASSWORD’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change
    I make sure that root is in my MySQL users… and then I try /wp-admin/install.php … I get this error
    We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
    Are you sure it exists?
    So then I got into MySQL and make a database called wordpress and then try that URL again and get this error…
    SQL/DB Error:
    [Table ‘wordpress.wp_options’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT option_name, option_value FROM wp_options
    And I even made sure root had the permissions….
    I am running
    PHP 4.3.4
    Apache 2.0.48
    MySQL 4.0.18
    WordPress 1.0.2

    Oh never mind I am STUPID…
    I did not press the little itty bitty lets go link at the bottom of the page…
    sorry for this post then and thanks to the ppl that posted trying to help me…
