    i keep getting this message when i try to install WP.

    WordPress database error: [CREATE command denied to user 'blabla'@'' for table 'wp_webhostingterms']
    CREATE TABLE wp_webhostingterms ( term_id bigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment, name varchar(200) NOT NULL default '', slug varchar(200) NOT NULL default '', term_group bigint(10) NOT NULL default 0, PRIMARY KEY (term_id), UNIQUE KEY slug (slug), KEY name (name) ) DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8

    This error is repeated many times with each command it tries to create.

    The errors come up after the install page where ya fill in the blog name and enter your email addy.

    What could be the problem?

    Your database user does not have permission to create tables.

    How you fix it will depend on what sort of hosting setup you have.
