    Evening all,

    I thought I had set up all the required parts to get the site working but I do not seem to have any joy.

    I have set up a database:
    Server: mysql7.namesco.net
    Username: holyportfc (not the actual username)
    Password: holyportfc1 (not the actual password)
    http://www.mydbadmin.co.uk/?server=7

    I have used Transmit on my Mac to upload the wordpress files

    I have modfield the file that is required to read:
    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', '...');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', '...');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '...');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', '...');

    Secret key is xxx at the moment

    I should by all accounts be able to access the site at http://www.holyportfc.co.uk/wp-login.php but I do not get anything apart from the current site.

    Also I would like to build this site in the background until its all current for content etc. How do I do this.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    don't post your database passwords here, or anywhere else either. - mod

    How is your host as if you have cpanel you are suppose use cpanelusername_ in your
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'holyportfc');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'holyportfc');

    Hi,

    I am not using Cpanel, I have used transmit to upload my files to my server.

    Hi Brad,

    This software is not for MAC?

    This tends to indicate that you put the WordPress files in the wrong place, or have the URL wrong.
