Mysql related

  • Hello- new user here… love the program- it seems very promising and i am eager to use it. i have a couple of questions if some can help me out…
    1) do i need to have my site set up like this:
    http://www.mysite.com/index.html
    or:
    http://www.mysite.com/wordpress/index.html
    or does it matter at all?
    and
    2) i am getting an error when i try the install that is DB related. I notice others have similiar problems and i am wondering if the answer to my first question would solve this for me. if not does anyone know a place where i can see how to set up my Mysql DB tables?
    thanks

  • http://www.mysite.com/wordpress/index.php would be the root but you could potentially put it in the main index i.e. http://www.mysite.com/index.php if you wanted to. I don’t think it really cares where you put it since the files in the wordpress directory are doing the work of calling the information from SQL.
    wp-config.php talks to the SQL.
    DB_NAME, ‘yourSQLdatabasename’ The name of the database
    DB_USER’, ‘yourSQLloginusername’ Your MySQL username
    DB_PASSWORD’, ‘yourpassword’ …and password
    DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’ 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    thanks for your help- now i can worry about other things!
