    I installed WP on my site, and it show up, but I have only Profile, View Site, and Logout as options. What can I do? I was able to comment, just no admin ability.

    When you finished install, wp gave you 'admin' as the login, and a random password.
    Using that will show all controls / options / whatever.
    Sounds like you created a new user ?
    Do you recall the random password ?

    If you have phpmyadmin installed, follow these instructions to manually reset the admin's password: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/phpmyadmin/

    I do not have it yet, will check into installing it. What if I cannot? What should I do then?
    and by the way, thanks!

    phpMyadmin should be installed by your host (unless you are hosting your site).
    The other option is: delete and re-install everything, but write down the password.
