I got to option_name but saw no 'active_plugins' and I don't know much about how to look at this
I deleted everything now;
I got two MT blogs going which are really the result of not being able to install WP previously; now the same happens with the new 1.5WP
If there is a specific WP problem re my host, look at it this way:
Back in Nov/December their mysql "crashed" with all content gone;
they installed a new mysql system etc
I had a functioning WP for two years or so;
then in Jan or february I deleted everything,
cleaned out my website files and gifs and stuff
then thinking, I downloaded a NEW advertised version of WP,
not realizing it was the same old that I just deleted;
but I could not install it
(I posted some questions here at that time)
That's when I also deleted my old version MT
and got the latest MT instead and made two blogs of it
Now last week or so I saw all those NEW 1.5 versions WP
and downloaded it ; again, I can't install it (see above)
...and different problems I never encountered before.
So what question should be addressed to the server?
before I download again and start over?
and arrive for a third or forth time at the same results as above?
