    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.

    Your database name is currently specified as tddwckbi_bloggage. Is this correct?

    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..

    xMEEPYx

    (@xmeepyx)

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

    xMEEPYx

    (@xmeepyx)

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

    xMEEPYx

    (@xmeepyx)

    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.

    (@xmeepyx)

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

    xMEEPYx

    (@xmeepyx)

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

    Beel

    (@beel)

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

    xMEEPYx

    (@xmeepyx)

    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 ^_^
