    Alright so I have mysql installed with the usernames wordpress and wp with access to an empty database wordpress. Php is install. I am using windows xp pro with iss5.1 When I goto the install.php it says that it can't connect to mysql. I've checked to make sure that things can login with the mentioned usernames. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    "can't connect to mysql" would be related to the DB_Host value in wp-config.php. Double-check the DB_Host value. This may help: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/

    It's not my host value I've used localhost, localhost:3306 mydomain.com, mydomain.com:3306 (mydomain = my real domain name)

    Have you tried ? That would be the same as local host. It's what I had to use on FreeBSD
