    Who is your webhost?
    Do they use cpanel / plesk / ensim or vdeck?
    Hope that helps

    Okay, first you don’t need xampp right now. That’s for having a blog running on your computer which right now is not what you need.

    I assume you have uploaded all the files to the webspace.
    Now follow this page:
    to make a database, a database user and a database password.
    They are the only 3 details you need to get it going.
    Does that help at all?

    I can’t make a database with user “wordpress”
    In config.php, Do I have to make changes to localhost?

    I have some trouble with my installation.

    I’m trying to install WordPress 2.02 in the server. I configured the config…php file, I set up the database (MySQL 4.1.18), but after put my email and name of the blog, it stops. Everything stop. There’s no sign of a “second stage” in the installation.

    Well, I check the database, and the install.php set the tables, but when I try to run index.php it shows nothing.

    What could it be?

    Well, I’ve got also a problem. I uploaded WordPress on my FTP server for my website, but he didn’t do it. Then I followed the instructions in the README, but I don’t know what my DATABASE details are. What can I do know?
    I’m almost 2 hours busy with this thing, but it won’t work!
    Can you please give me some things, so I can change it or something, so it does work?

    Well, I’ve had no problems with the WordPress 1.2
