    I need help, I am making a business website and I am not sure what to do, I downloaded wordpress, I installed it with all the steps, and put it all the info, by the way I cannot find the password that is given, if you can help me with that too, I downloaded a template and I want to know how to activate it to wordpress so I can start building.
    Thanks in advanced.

    What password? There's no one here who can provide you with a copy of the password for your site. Did you run the install script? Is WordPress up and running? If so, you should be able to use the Forgotten password link at http://your_wordpress_site/wp-admin

    I want to know how to activate it to wordpress

    I'd suggest that you start with http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start

    NO, I got that fixed, its just that I am not sure it is all running and the guide didn't help me much, I follow what it says but eventually a problem occurs, I just need an easy guide, I usually master those guides but something went wrong with this one.

    The Codex documentation is about as easy as it gets, I'm afraid. Problems can occur for many reasons so it would be better if you posted a topic when such a problem occurs - giving details of what happened, what you were doing (or had recently done) before you had the problem, and, if necessary, the url of your site.

    Its ok, I found the problem and solved it, it is now installed and works fine, the only thing I didn't know was that I need to upload it on a FTP software, so I read it and did it all, and now it works finne on my domain, but I still got some problems.
    when I enetered and it asked me to put the mysql username I didn't know what to write, Email or my name, or my name and last name that is in my account, also the database host, if you can help me with that.
    Do I need to write it all in the wp-config-sample?

    You need to open wp-config-sample file in dreamweaver or a text editor and add the mysql database details, e.g. database name, database username, database password, and database server host.

    You then need to "save as" wp-config and upload the file.

    Contact your hosting provider. They should be able to provide you with your database name, your MySQL host, your database username and your database password. Then follow uglymoggy's instructions.
