Support » Installing WordPress » WP instalation question

  • Hello,

    I´ve been busy with this problem for a while now and I´m hoping someone can help me here.
    I neatly followed the 5-step-program, but I keep sticking with step 5.
    After changing the wp_config data and uploading the wp files to my webserver, the link to install wp still doesn’t work.
    Below are the things I’ve filled in, maybe that’s where I’ve taken the wrong turn? But I don’t see it.

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘dorindavanderja’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘PASSWORD’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    I’ve also tried the DB_NAME with dorindavanderja, which says is my MySQL username.
    Does someone knows what I’m doing wrong? If so, please help and I will be very grateful!

  • You need to create a database and user for database and give all privileges so WordPress can create tables.

    But with you can´t create more than one database (at least with the package I’ve bought). So there is already one database, and I suppose it has al privileges. Do you know how I can check that, or give it al privileges? And does wordpress create the tables itself or do I need to do that?
    Thanks for the reaction!

    That may be true, but you still need to create that database in mysql.

    If the above settings are correct and you have successfully created an empty database you can try visiting


    The install script will take care of the rest. If the DB user, password and database name are not right, then it will not work and revisit the link I posted.

    You’ll have to ask your hosts about database permissions. WordPress will create the tables for you once it has access to the database.

    If you have one database and that is working then you need to just change the table prefix from wp_ to any other like wp1_ then you can install more than one copies of WordPress in 1 one database.
