    Default mysql database and wordpress

    I have set up a wordpress account using fantastico. I don't know what to enter on the mysql database form and how do I link to my wordpress account.

    You do not need to do anything if using Fantastico to install Wordpress --- it is all done automatically for you.

    If you mean "how do I access my Wordpress" then use your domain in a link that looks like this to access the Control Panel, where you will use the User Name and Password you created during installation > http://www.YourDomainNameHere.com/wp-admin/

    What I can't get through my head is do I go to the mysql data base in cpanel and what am I filling out in all the blank spaces.
    Not only that on the website what is the link to get a viewer to wordpress?

    1a. You do not need to mess with any Database creation or anything else: FANTASTICO FULLY INSTALLS WORDPRESS AUTOMATICALLY FOR YOU.
    1b. If by 'blank spaces' you are attempting to describe the process of installing Wordpress in Fantastico and having to specify the Directory it will be installed to, the first "box" needs to be filled in with the Domain you wish to use. If you are intending to install this Wordpress into a separate Directory on the original www.Bradkimball.com Domain, then simply type in a name for the Directory (i.e. "lab-rat-news") and Fantastico will automatically create it for you and install Wordpress into that directory.

    2. When it comes to LINKS to your Wordpress, there are only 2 that you need use:

    2b. The link for you and all Visitors to use to actually vist your Wordpress is simply the direct link to the Directory (Domain) it was installed in: http://www.YourDomain.com .... or, if installed into a directory upon a previous Domain (as exampled above), the link might look something like this: http://www.YourDomain.com/directory-name-you-chose/


    Follow PRECISELY the Instructions as outlined in the Tutorial >> How to install WordPress via Fantastico in your control panel
