    So I’m trying to get this up and running but couldn’t get very far. phpMyAdmin 2.9.2 wants me to enter a number of fields.
    Read a post about this that never seemed to be solved. what do I do?! thanks!

    You shouldn’t be setting up any tables. Just set up the database and its user.

    yes I understand this from the other post. thing is phpmyadmin wont let me leave that field blank or type 0. see screenshot.
    If I write 3 or any other number in the field I get even more headache. see screen.

    Don’t set up any tables.

    Thanks Esmi!
    The reason I’ve been confused is that I thought that table screen actually was for database creation.

    However, there are no options for me to create a new database. As far as I understood I should be creating a new one realating to wordpress for security reasons?

    Try asking your hosts about this. You should be able to set a database without any tables.

    Turns out my host one.com only offer shared hosting… It isn’t possible for me to create new databases. Is this a problem?

    Do you have an existing database that you can use on that account? Incidentally, plenty of companies offering shared hosting also offer access to multiple databases on a per-account basis.

    Yes I have a database on that account but I was under the impression that I needed a seperate DB for wordpress(again, security reasons?)… According to One.com’s support, they simply don’t offer the possibility to create more databases. Should I move to another host or just work with the existing database?
    thanks!

    Security reasons: I’m thinking about this statement: “Please, do not edit this Codex Page with the settings for your own server as you are giving the world access to your website’s MySQL password, and will not make your install work. Thanks.

    No – that’s not absolutely necessary.
