    Ben, Thanks for your response. I put the code in the index.php file as instructed in the video. Should i have put it somewhere else? All: The courses are good. I am a complete newbie to web design and these videos have helped me out thus far... Thanks.

      If you have hostgator they have a one click install for WP. They install the WP files and database, but if you have developed locally you need to respect the naming conventions. You should post to the forum not here.

      Yes. Post the question on the forum. That said, error establishing database connection means either you have not entered the right database URL or your database is not set up. Call your hosting company.

  11. i bought the dreamweaver and wordpress training but after falling the steps over and over again...i keep getting errors like this...Index of / cgi-bin/ wordpress/ Apache mod_fcgid/2.3.6 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at www.delawarebarbershops.com Port 80
