I can’t seem to install. First changed and uploaded the wp-config file manually and got:
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the weblog_global database.
* Are you sure it exists?
* Does the user weblog have permission to use the weblog_global database?
* On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_weblog_global. Could that be the problem?
If you don’t know how to set up a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.
I checked and double checked that DB info was entered correctly and then tried to install through the browser by deleting the wp-config file. Yet when I attempted to install I got this:
Sorry, I need a wp-config-sample.php file to work from. Please re-upload this file from your WordPress installation.
Another blog was set up successfully with the same host.
