I am very new to this and this is my first attempt at installing WordPress. I have created a database with my host (Rackspace) and have filled in all the relevant details in wp-config-sample.php. Following the instructions I have uploaded the all of the files with the correct file structure, and it should appear as a URL:
so the installation file is found at:
However when I enter that URL it is a blank screen and I can not continue with the installation.
Can anyone please advise? I'm sure I've done something very simple wrong, but I am completely baffled.
