Since Yahoo provides installation of WP2.0 I'm trying to do a manual installation of 1.5.2.
I have done as far as uploading all necessary files to a folder /152/ and setup the wp-config file and making a database connection. However error message during WP installation shows that user "sfong15" is unable to connect to the database.
I could login phpmyadmin alright using username "sfong15" in which I have created a database named "152". I got error like #1044 - access denied for user 'sfong15'@'localhost' to database '152'
At home page of phpmyadmin I clicked privileges, I got warning and was told to run mysql_fix_privilege_tables, did that and clicked "reload the privileges" but got message "access denied; you need the RELOAD privilege for this operation".
I got stuck, don't I have all privileges after login?
Funny enough in the wp-config file the db_host name should be mysql instead of localhost.
