    What to do? Not sure where to login or how this happened.

    THanks for any advice. Am standing by, waiting for help! THANKS!

    Samboll, hopefully you are still on line. I sure was hoping you'd respond. Can you standby for just a minute? I'm not sure what is going on. I've been at this for four hours. I will try what you said and check back in a min. Thanks much!

    I'm modifying the wp-config file now (again). Just put in the db name, un and pw, and the correct host name. Do I need to change the "unique phrase here" lines - and if so, generate a key? I think I read that somewhere on WP help.

    leave the keys alone until you are installed
    you can generate and add the keys afterward and it's one less chance of messing up
