I'm trying to install wordpress for a client who uses yahoo hosting.
Even though yahoo offers an option inside their sitebuilder to automatically install wordpress, it won't install it at the root of the server. It insists on doing it in a directory. For reasons that are long and complicated, I absolutely MUST install my client's blog at the root.
Manual installation of wordpress on yahoo is hampered by the fact that the version of phpmyadmin offered by yahoo won't allow me to create a user for the wordpress database. It allows me to create the database, but when I attempt to create a user, I get this error:
"Warning: Your privilege table structure seems to be older than this MySQL version! Please run the script mysql_fix_privilege_tables that should be included in your MySQL server distribution to solve this problem!"
Has anyone found a way to surmount these problems? I'm literally tearing my hair out. Short of telling my client to move to a different hosting company, is there anything I can do to get this installed at the root?
