Default Wordpress install not working - Server? - 07-03-2010, 10:18 PM

hi! I am having a problem in my website... I made a new account and started everything and I am trying to install wordpress... but I can't do it because 000webhost.com don't let me install it... It displays the following message: "Error establishing a database connection"... Anyone could help me?

Also the Fantastico autoinstaller is down for upgrade... Could it be the reason? How many days would the Fantastico be down?

Thanks!

Fantastico will be down for a while, believe me
This tutorial should be a big help in setting up WordPress yourself. The error you receive most likely is because of not having changed the mysql database details in wp-config.php

I assume itīll be down for a while because itīs been down like what? 1.5 years?
And it doesnīt seem to be on the priority list of things that need to get fixed.

Plus itīs better to install scripts manually since you always can use the latest version of them instead installing an (in many auto-installers i saw) outdated version of it. For example one hosting company offered to install WordPress 2.5 via Fantastico when 2.9 was already available (few months back).

Could you help me with this:?

I created all as it should be but my wordpress blog is now in a thing like:

mysite.uphero.com/MYsite

This is really bad! Can't it be like this: mysite.uphero.com/ to see my blog?

public_html is the root directory. Whatever you want to be displayed when someone visits http://yoursite.uphero.com needs to be placed directly into the public_html directory, nowhere else
