I am not familiar with anything to do with all this so really need help please. I downloaded WordPress just now and can't find which version, so assume its 3.4.2... sorry!
I have hosting with Freezone.
I went onto Freezone control panel and completed the first part of the wordpress guide instructions... ie Login to your site, MySQL Database Wizard, Step 1, Create a Database (though quite why I have to, I don't know). It did not have the same buttons to press as WordPress guide showed, but a worked that bit out (yay me!) and managed Step 2, create Database User (again slightly different to WordPress guide). I can only assume that the Freezone site actually sorts a lot of this out itself! Anyway, I added myself again in order to try and get to the assign necessary database privileges. That just is nowhere I can find. The last bit, Step 4, Complete the Task is okay but I have no idea about the privileges or if they are set up or what.
My main problem though (and I don't know if what has gone before is going to cause any trouble when I find out how to do what I need next which is why I have included all that... thanks for your patience) is the next bit...
Editing the WordPress Config File.
Open the file wp-config-sample.php using a text editor.
(I have textedit on my mac.)
Where is the file in order for me to open it please?
(The frustration is extreeeeeeme).
Many many thanks... sorry for being thick if its all obvious.
