I hope I can ex-plane this well enough. I am new to wordpress, I am trying to work though the linda.com tutorials. I have installed wamp on my computer. I have wordpress files in my www file I renamed it to the site name for the tutorial. www/explore_ca/blog/ is my file layout. I created the data base in mysql. I even created a user name and password as per on of the post I already read here trying to figure this out before I posted. I go though the install and everything seems to go fine. The first thing I noticed was in the tutorial on this part from linda.com they are taken to the sussess and log in screen when the install is done. All I get is the W wordpress logo at the top I tried waiting a few mins figuring that it was taking a while so I watched tv for about 30 mins still had the same thing showing. So I figured maybe it just got hung up after the install so I refresh the page and it tells me that wordpress is already installed. I click contue and it takes me to the log in page.
I type in my information and I get ERROR: Invalid username. Lost your password?
When I go to the data base I can not find my username or password any were. The one I did though mysql or with the install.
