[resolved] Nothing appears in my Phpmyadmin database, but filezilla says it uploaded it. (7 posts)

    I am having a confusing time. I am using filezilla to upload the WordPress 3.3.2 for my new website. I have been following the instructions on this site, which I understand. However when filezilla has finished uploading my files to my host, nothing appears in my Phpmyadmin database. Also some files seem to get lost between the upload in filezilla. It says something like 1,456 files in the original wordpress folder, then once its uploaded it says there's 1,264 or something similar.

    thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Something will only appear in the database after you run the install script at domain.com/wp-admin/install.php

    Have you run that step yet?

    fonglh right. you must do so before the database being inserted.
    Anyway, on Filezila, you should see any failed transfer at the bottom of the application (by default).

    Just upload wordpress as a tar or zip to your rootfolder.
    Then you're sure that all files are copied.

    Then just untar it like this:

    tar -xzvf nametarfile.tar.gz'
    or with unzip:
    unzip namezipfile.zip'

    then just change wp-settings-sample.php to wp-settings.php like so:
    mv wp-settings-sample.php wp-settings.php

    change the details that need to be changed in that same file and run the install.php from the website

    hope this helped

    All that needs to be done is what fonglh says, and that is to install WordPress once you have uploaded it.

    Perhaps these instructions will help:
