    While installing I got the following errors:
    wp_posts: Table 'wordpress.wp_posts' doesn't exist
    wp_comments: Table 'wordpress.wp_comments' doesn't exist
    wp_links: Table 'wordpress.wp_links' doesn't exist
    wp_options: Table 'wordpress.wp_options' doesn't exist
    wp_postmeta: Table 'wordpress.wp_postmeta' doesn't exist
    wp_term_relationships: Table 'wordpress.wp_term_relationships' doesn't exist
    wp_commentmeta: Table 'wordpress.wp_commentmeta' doesn't exist
    What should I do?
    Should I create them manually ans so yes which structure should they have?

    If it's a brand new site/blog with no content you could lose, I would do the whole install again.
    - make sure you have all the wordpress files uploaded (ideally the latest version)
    - make sure that wp-config.php is set correctly - especially database name and prefixes
    - make sure that the database exists and you have rights to edit it
    - if there are any tables from your previous unsuccessful installations, delete them - make the database empty to start with
    - then instal as usual
    I think it's a much greater probability of success than trying to create the table structures manually.

    Delete the database and re-install WordPress.
