    The second step says:

    WordPress database error: [CREATE command denied to user: 'Hannas_wph@ws5.surf-town.net' for table 'wp_comments']
    CREATE TABLE wp_categories ( cat_ID bigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment, cat_name varchar(55) NOT NULL default '', category_nicename varchar(200) NOT NULL default '', category_description longtext NOT NULL, category_parent int(4) NOT NULL default '0', PRIMARY KEY (cat_ID), KEY category_nicename (category_nicename) )

    for every table it is trying to create.

    please, what is wrong?

    Once you database is created, the WordPress installation script goes through and creates all the necessary tables it needs

    It looks like the database username you provided WordPress does not have enough permissions to create tables. This will mean that a lot of functionailty will not work as WP will need to alter the table entries later on for your blog to function.

    Contact your hosting provider and ensure that your database account has the appropriate permissions.
