Support » Installing WordPress » Problems during installation

  • I am installing WP on my host.
    I updated the config file with my DB info and am able to start the installation.
    But I get this error after starting:
    Installing WP-Links.
    Checking for tables…
    Can’t find table ‘wp_linkcategories’, gonna create it…
    (a whole bunch of DB Stuff) then
    Access denied for user: ‘akanowic_w@209.68.%.%’ to database ‘akanowic_blog’

    But it lets me continue on to steps 2 and 3, giving me the username of admin and a password. I try to login and it tells me:
    It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet. Try running install.php.
    Any ideas on why this is failing?
    Thank you,

  • AH-HA…I figured it out. Yesterday as I was trying to get it to work I changed the DB user to the one with read/write access (as opposed to the user with full access) thinking that might remedy my problems. So switching that back to the main DB user corrected it and let me create the tables, etc.
    For others with install problems I had to ensure that my DB servername was put in the config file, not ‘localhost’

    This thread does not validate!
