I downloaded wordpress. I changed the the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
Now, when making changes:
"define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');// The name of the database"
Does this mean I should name my database "wordpress" when I create it? My host (godaddy.com) doesn't give me the option of naming my database, it only shows my username.
Anyway, I created a mysql database. I uploaded the contents of the wordpress folder to my hosting account, in the root directory. I went to http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php (with my site's name in place of "example", of course). There's nothing there. What am I missing?
Do I need to upload anything to the mysql database? I can't really even figure out what it does.
