Hi Tawnya

 

In PHP admin, Add the DATABASE ie TS and then add a USER ie tawnya,

 

You THEN have to add the user to the database with full rights (this is the step most people miss)

 

When you are setting up wordpress remember that your database name and your user name will be prefixed

by the name you used to log into Cpanel.

 

So if your cpanel login name is MMAGE then your database is called MMAGE_TS and your user is MMAGE_tawnya. Use these names to set up wordpress

 

These names will appear in the dropdown boxes in PHP MY admin, at the bottom of the page where you add databases and users.

 

Database and user names are case sensitive.

For anyone else who wants to install wordpress the wordpress codex has the Wordpress Installation Guide

 

Wordpress is one of the simplest open source applications.

 

The easiest way I know to get your feet wet with PHP/MYSQL applications

 

You don't have to be an expert in PHP/MSQL, by installing wordpress yourself you will get a basic understanding of the technology and you can move forward in your learning process from there.

Ok...I can't figure it out Therese! LOL!

 

Care to walk me through it one day over the phone? I will pay you to do this. I would really like to know how to do this. I did it easily on my own server since it actually had a separate place where you add a user...but this one uses myphpadmin and I'm lost.

Pay me ? Woman, considering what you give us, your money is just no darn good round these parts.

Therese, I missed your call, sorry and thanks for calling, I was actually on another SKYPE call. I am finding SKYPE such a convenient way to converse with clients.

 

If you are around another day...please try again :)
