Support » Installing WordPress » We’re having a little trouble selecting the prope

  • Ahg!
    We’re having a little trouble selecting the proper database for WordPress.
    *Are you sure it exists?
    *Your database name is currently specified as Bloggage. Is this correct?
    *On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?
    I don’t er… remember making a DB.. I named one in wp-config.php, but I dunno if I ‘made’ one..
    I’m pretty sure I have wp-config right. I uploaded everything correctly, too.. I’m so confused ::cries:: =P Help would be greatly appreciated ^_^

  • Do you have access to CPanel or PHPmyAdmin on your host? If so, you bassically just click on create a database, then set wp-config to that database.

    Ok.. I did that.. but it still gives me the same error.. But now it has my new database’s name.

    Oops.. I had the wrong user for the database.. I fixed it and now I get a new error.. or.. well, errors

    No need to copy the entire list of warning messages. There is whitespace in the file “wp-login.php” – delete any carriage returns or spaces before the opening “<?php” and after the closing “?>” in that file.

    All the spaces? There’s A LOT of spaces..

    Now set your WP URI properly (it is currently set to the subdirectory of “main3” but actually resides in the root directory.

    What’s a carriage? WP URI? I can’t seem to find that..

    OK.. I deleted the spaces in wp-login.. How am I to edit the URI?

    Whenever I enter in the password and hit enter, it basically refreshes and clears the fields (username and password)

    Ahg.. How are you logged in and I’m not? I think I gave it the password it gave me.. but even if I didn’t, it won’t let me do a lost password thing.

    phpMyAdmin is where? Aw man I feel like such a lamer haha

    I found it.. I’m not that much of a lamer anymore. What do you want me to do in phpmyadmin?

    Actually, you haven’t done anything yet, so why not drop the entire database and run install.php again?

    Ehg.. I’m in. I don’t know how but I am. I’m at a new post and I made one! Now every post I make will be at index.php? Thank you sooo much ^_^

    Last question and I’ll be out of your hair forever =P Where do I put the style.css file for changing.. the css style hehe
