    Greetings to you, I'm having problems with mySQL.
    I'm very new to WP and have no idea how to use mySQL.
    I'm just a simple person who wants to use WP for my website animation. http://www.dawnofsilence.com.
    I have corrected wp-config.php file to my webspace details. (www.web-mania.com)

    To let you know, I have made screengrabs of the problem, so you can see it at first hand.
    Okay, this is the point of the problem i got:

    Like i said before, I dont know to setup my own account in mySQL.

    When you log into mySQL, this is what you see. I clicked on the username on the far left side and it opens into this.

    I insert 'wordpress' in my name box and '0' (zero) in field.

    and this appears afterwards and this point i have no idea what to do?!?! O_o

    Can someone help poor me? It would help me lots.
    Thanks for reading and your time.

    Webmania are not a good host - http://www.asmallorange.com is cheaper and a whole lot better. But that doesn't help you now :)

    Login to the control panel, click mySQL and that single screen should have the information you need.
    From memory, the db password is the same as your login password, and you choose the db name. (Where you'd gone too above was too far - that is phpmyadmin). I can't recall where the username comes from and I think it's localhost..

    I stayed with web-mania for a VERY short amount of time then ran. Hopeless...
