    Hi,

    I'm installing WordPress 2.7.1 into one of my domains using the Cpanel interface and each time I run the install, when I try to connect to the URL for my new WordPress installation it gives me a database error.

    Going into the database with phpMyAdmin, I find a new database created, but it's blank. No tables.

    If I try to rerun the install using the now created database, it tells me that the directories have been created - I have to go into the file manager and delete the directory - but even trying to use an existing database, I don't get the tables populated.

    Is there something wrong with the default Wordpress installation through cPanel?

    :confused: Douglas

    Just to confirm, you are clicking on "Site Software" then under "Blogs" you are clicking on "WordPress" - correct?

    You aren't clicking on in icon like Installatron, Fantastico or Softaculous, correct?

    That is correct, I do *not* have fantastico installed. This is the WordPress that is being installed through the cPanel interface.

    I just attempted this on a server running EDGE and was unable to reproduce this issue. If you have root access to your server, feel welcome to contact our technical analysts for assistance: http://tickets.cPanel.net

    Otherwise, if you just have a hosting account on the server, just contact your hosting provider for assistance and they can contact us directly.
