Hey Courtney, great tutorial.You are a natural teacher. However, when I got
almost to the end in the part where I go to
http://localhost/wp-admin/install/php, this is what I keep doing. Ive been
trying to solve this for a while, but cannot figure it out. Any advice
would be appreciated.

Can’t select database
We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username
and password is okay) but not able to select the james_wordpress database.

Are you sure it exists?
Does the user root have permission to use the james_wordpress database?
On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username,
so it would be like username_james_wordpress. Could that be the problem?
If you don’t know how to set up a database you should contact your host. If
all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.

OK….after two hours and three trys, I got all the way to password setup..
I put in my password, then I was given a random password anyway. So, I
highlited and copied it. Finally got to the login screen. Pasted the
password in the box……ERROR WRONG PASSWORD. okay, so I tried the one I
created…….ERROR ect. And of course I can’t retrieve my password because
the EMAIL WON’T WORK…….I’m done. I surrender. You win.
