I have been doing web design and coding for about 5 years now, but databases are pretty new to me (never needed them for the projects that I was working on). I am a college student and just wanted to integrate wordpress into my site so I could let my family and friends know what I was up to. I have read the docs on setting up the database and what not, but it doesnt seem to be working. I tried it just today, and tried to run the install.php, but just got a message saying "Mysql was not found in the installation".
I am pretty clueless about what to do now. If anyone has a helpful way of installing wordpress and creating a database to be used, I would greatly appreciate it. I am using the latest version of phpmyadmin and my site (adayinthelife.us) is hosted with godaddy with the deluxe hosting plan.
As I have said before, I followed the step-by-step installing instructions for setting up the database with phpmyadmin, but some of the steps listed do not match what I have.
