    I followed these great directions (you know, the 5 min one’s…) :
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Step_3:_Set_up_wp-config.php

    and and installed WP on the root directory of my site. After (5 min and 4 hours – my first time using a DB, excuses..excuses..) I was finally able to get to this screen (YES!):
    http://www.myblueshoes.com/wp-admin/install.php

    But (sadly…), when I continued to the next page and entered my weblog Title/email address, even though I was able to get a WP login an PW,
    it showed a long page full of repeating error messages like these (here’s where it get’s ugly…):
    ________________________________________________________
    Warning: preg_match() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /home/mbs/public_html/wp-admin/upgrade-functions.php on line 336

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘mbs_mbsbloggerDB.wp_options’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT option_name FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘siteurl’

    Hmmmm…..And since I tried this several times, I have generated several passwords also.

    but no matter at this point – one problem at a time -as the
    Login address (link)
    wp-login.php
    only gives me this:
    http://www.myblueshoes.com/wp-login.php

    (Also it seems that the WP files I placed on the root directory of my site have knocked out my (index.htm) website. )

    What to do? should I not have placed the WP files on the same directory level as a html website?
    can anyone let me know why I cannot login to the admin area and get this puppy going
    What’s wrong with this picture?
    (Sorry I cannot be more technical about the situation…)

    but
