    i have just signed up with PowWeb for a hosting plan. They have installed WP on the server.

    I can see all the WP folder and files. Currently my default is still PoWweb page. I want to make the root as my default blog page.

    I have read and gone thru the support doc but still at a lost.
    I would appreciated if someone with experience to help me sort this out.

    I'm willing to give all my login access for this purposes. Anyone out there generous enough to help me?

    Hi Onice,

    I'm not an expert with Word Press nor familiar with PowWeb, but you should never give out your login or password.

    If the WP folders are in your root directory, you will also see an index.html file which is the PowWeb page which I see at your site. Most likely they have supplied you with information about setting up a database or they may have done so for you and given you the necessary infomation to configure your Word Press installation. That is done by editing the wp-config-sample.php file which should also be in your root directory.

    define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'username'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    Fill those in with the information PowWeb has supplied you with (or the database name they have told you to make. Then save the file as wp-config.php and upload it to the same root directory. Then open http: //YOUR_SITE_NAME/wp-admin/install.php and you should arrive at a login page with admin as your user name and the password which was generated by Word Press.

    When you login there you are at the Dashboard and ready to begin writing and configuring it to your heart's content.

    Delete the files that are in the /wp-includes directory, then reupload new ones.
